in the house of the japanese maple
I'm moving this image to the front of my stream to announce my first ever showing in a gallery! I will have three images (this and two others) up at the Sixth Street Gallery during the month of October. It's their Annual Women's Show. I actually had these three shots entered for last year's juried photo show, but my entry was misplaced, the images belatedly accepted, and instead I am showing them at the Women's Show this year (which was the next available show that they were qualified to be in).
The artist's reception is from 5-9pm this coming Friday, October the 5th, although I will probably not be there myself until 8pm or so, as someone else I know has an opening (exhibiting floralscapes) the same night from 5-8pm in Camas.

This isn't 'that' Japanese Maple Tree, but it's just as beautiful... especially when one takes the time to examine all aspects of its canopy. Crouching underneath one of these trees makes me feel as though I am in a House of Autumn, my leafy roof ablaze with color.
