Primarily portraits of people I know or with whom I cross paths. The primary reason to photograph them, is that I like them. They are interesting. They have nice smiles. They have lives with hopes and dreams. They are...Just People.

A Gunner Manning Brown Bess
The young man below was one of the small team who manned "Brown Bess". This was a 1" ball, flint lock. It was, for its day, a sniper rifle.
It was huge and needed to be mounted on a tripod. Shooting it must have been quite an experience!
