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.

The Chicago Museam of Art: Paintings: Monet's Arrival of the Normandy Train
Claude Monet's "Arrival of the Normandy Train" was painted in 1877. He rented an apartment in the nearby rue Monesry and began the first of twelve painting in this area.
There is rumor that he paid to have extra coal on hand to keep the smoke billowing so he could capture it.
