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's Museum of Art: Renoir's "Near the Lake"
Renoir painted this about 1879-1880. The setting hasn't been determined. Many believe it to be near the tourist destination of Bois de Boulogne in the western suburbs of Paris.
Renoir, like many artists used his friends as models.
