One final photo from my short trip last month along the Fox River, which empties into the Illinois River. Here we see river ice as it landed on the bank with this awesome vertical-lift bridge for rail traffic in the background. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 13, […]
Month: March 2019
Frozen fields, snow on the roofs, barren trees. I love scenes like this one. A keen eye might say that I’m over-processing the photograph, but the white glow on the trees isn’t from post-processing, it’s from the ice storm the night before. The trees all […]
This little forest preserve along the Fox River offers beautiful views and plenty of nice walking and biking trails.

Another photo from a drive along the Fox River in winter. I love weather with personality, and days like this—with clouds and frigid cold—make it memorable. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 13, 2019). Silos & Storage [Photograph]. Yorkville, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 17mm, 1/250 […]
I consider March still a part of winter in Chicago. Here’s a photo from last month after another lovely “wintery mix” storm dropped freezing rain and snow on us. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 13, 2018). Winter on the Fox River [Photograph]. Batavia, Illinois. Shot on a […]
Now an apartment complex, this former button factory in Yorkville, Ill., maintains its charm. I don’t normally process photos like I’ve done here, a b&w conversion with a sepia tone, film grain, vignette, etc. But the sun was high, the clouds had cleared, and I […]
While crossing this road twenty-one years ago, I pointed a Canon Rebel G at the cars, shoppes and people. Today you can visit that same street via Google Maps. Thanks to the Redditors at /r/Ireland for the help in reminding me this was Killarney.

At first glance, you probably are thinking that this doesn’t qualify for my “small bridge” series. But take another look, as we have nested bridges over the Fox River. Above us is I-90 in Elgin, Illinois. They rebuilt this entire structure recently, and I love […]
One of the things I love about medium format photography is the focus falloff. The out-of-focus areas just evaporate into focus. Here we see a photo of Northwest Highway crossing the Fox River in Fox River Grove, Illinois. The river was at its banks most of the summer, and that’s what we see here.
