Power Grid

Power Grid

We’ve reached the final post in my New Orleans Travel Series. The city gets a bad rap in a lot of ways, but if you were to wager if a home in New Orleans had more power outages than my home in the NW suburbs […]

Peeling Light

Peeling Light

NOLA series, part 16 of 17. 

I wandered around the City Park neighborhood a bit with a red filter on the camera to see how I liked shooting with it for black and white shots. As always, there’s a ton of character around New Orleans, even in the utilities.

Skate Park

Skate Park

NOLA series, part 15 of 17.  So much to look at in this photo, with tricks, falls in process, breakdowns and, well, I’m not even sure what some of them are even doing. Eaves, Chris (March 24, 2019). Skate Park [Photograph]. Chalmette, Louisiana. Shot on […]

Superior Waiting

Superior Waiting

NOLA series, part 14 of 17.  We didn’t eat here, but next time we’re in town we’ll make an attempt. This whole neighborhood is abuzz with great energy and ample opportunities for wholesome fun.  Eaves, Chris (March 24, 2019). Superior Waiting [Photograph]. New Orleans, Louisiana. […]

Four on St. Charles

Four on St. Charles

NOLA series, part 13 of 17. 

By the time we got to this point of the ride, it was getting quite dim outside, and it seemed as if the street cars were starting to congregate like fireflies in a summer field.

  • Eaves, Chris (March 24, 2019). Four on St. Charles [Photograph]. New Orleans, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D at 100mm, 1/60 sec., f4.5 at ISO2000.

The 907

The 907

NOLA series, part 12 of 17.  Having not ridden the streetcars much, we made a crucial mistake and hopped on the line here, only to be told to get off 2 stops later at the end of the line and forced to completely repay our […]

Flower Girl

Flower Girl

NOLA series, part 11 of 17.  I’ll admit, I have no clue what this lady was doing. She rode up on this sweet, monogear retro bike with holiday lighting in the front wheel and fake flowers and then stopped for a while on the corner […]

Patriotic Loos

Patriotic Loos

Part 10 of 17. 

I was trying to get a pick of the roller-coaster riders, but instead, I had the manual focus set to the wrong stop and ended up getting the portapotties and mural in focus. I’m not exactly sure why the organizers Louisiana Crawfish Festival in Chalmette chose a patriotic mural as the spot to line up a couple dozen loos, but it does make for an interesting statement. 

  • Eaves, Chris (March 25, 2019). Patriotic Loos [Photograph]. Chalmette, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D at 40mm, 1/250 sec., f5.6 at ISO50.

Cracking a Window

Part 9 of 17.  This back porch in New Orleans offers great ventilation, but not much in the way of water or bug protection.  Eaves, Chris (March 23, 2019). Cracking a Window [Photograph]. New Orleans, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D at 70mm, 1/4000 sec., f4 […]

Plantation Still Life

Plantation Still Life

Part 8 of 17.  Enjoy the textures and light of this still life. Eaves, Chris (March 25, 2019). Plantation Still Life [Photograph]. Vacherie, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D 170mm, 1/200 sec., f5.6 at ISO1250. Support me on Patreon (chriseaves), and sign up for the Get […]

Front Porch

Front Porch

Part 7 of 17. 

When the plantation was built, the Mississippi River would have been visible from here. The levee blocks the view now, but we can pretend.

Tour Selfies

Tour Selfies

Part 6 of 17.  I watched from afar as a docent at the plantation gave a long presentation to a tour group. Some of the visitors were more into it than others … Eaves, Chris (March 25, 2019). Tour Selfies [Photograph]. Vacherie, Louisiana. Shot on […]

Outside Studies (Alongside the Bayou St. John)

Outside Studies (Alongside the Bayou St. John)

Part 5 of 17.  A student takes advantage of the wonderful spring weather in New Orleans to study outside. These benches along the bayou are functional at best, and I couldn’t quite bring myself to actually sit on any of them. Eaves, Chris (March 23, […]

On the Bayou

On the Bayou

Part 4 of 17. 

You’ll see all kinds of things on the Bayou St. John, including kayaks, canoes and paddle boards, and sometimes furry companions ride along, too.

  • Eaves, Chris (March 23, 2019). On the Bayou [Photograph]. New Orleans, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D at 300mm, 1/1000 sec., f5.6 at ISO200.
