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.

Chicago Museum of Art: Renoir's "Alfred Sisley"
Renoir painted this portrait of Alfred Sisley at Monet's home in Argenteuil in 1876.
Sisley was also an impressionist painter and friend.
Interestingly, there is little in the scene to indicate Sisley's passion for painting. There is no paint, no brush, no canvas!
