Great minds think alike.

Great artists do too.

Four submissions to this week’s online art gallery feature leaves. Two are of sunflowers; another two are apples.

But every artist and photographer offers a different take on what are definitely not tired subjects. That’s what makes art so wonderful — and our online art gallery so interesting.

“Who Done It?” Photographer Mike Hibbard says, There is a quarter-mile long brushy hillside on our walking route, used as a dump by passersby traveling between the Post Road to Greens Farm Road. My wife and I periodically do a clean-up along that stretch. Here is our latest bounty. The good news is that in our entire 4-mile walk around our neighborhood, we found only one discarded plastic bag of puppy-poo. Thank you to the many dog walkers in our area.”
