Introduction

As an inexperienced opencv user, getting feature detection/description working in python took some time. Then I realized that SIFT / SURF / everything that has some scale invariance in OpenCV was encumbered with patents. With BRISK / FREAK, now there are viable (or better) alternatives.

I hope this example helps anyone else who wants to get started in python with feature detection.
