Interesting People

Maryellen (MEP-Photography) ran a feature of images she liked, and it reminded me that features are good - they inspire us all - either by seeing great work, or having our work put in the context of other work we admire.

People are what I really like to take pictures of, but nowadays it's got a bit more complicated as to when and of whom you can take a picture, and more particularly, what you can do with it. But there are people who produce fascinating and insightful moments into the lives of others (and sometimes themselves!). Click through, and leave a comment as to what appeals to you about these.

Starting with something from Maryellen:
