Here's a link to some charming portraits of astronomers (via Dynamics of Cats).

I've done a little photography myself - in this age of digital cameras, who hasn't? - and I've really enjoyed things like macro shots, landscapes, and time-lapse video. But I've never really been good at photographing people. So when I see good portrait photography, like these, or like a wonderful book of portraits by Yousuf Karsh I saw the other day, I'm always kind of amazed at how much character it's possible to capture in a single picture.
