Forest Bend

Forest Bend

The light breaking through the clouds gave me a chance to take a quick shot of the road, covered by the tree canopy on this dreary, dismal day. Eaves, Chris (Oct. 20, 2018). Forest Bend [Photograph]. Moraine Hills State Park, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D […]

The Passing of Old Man Winter

The Passing of Old Man Winter

Back over in Lincoln Park, this wooden-framed structure offers a nice view of the Chicago skyline. At the time, it felt like winter was coming to an end. Little did I know that we’d get two more major snow events, the last one of the […]

Sunrise at the Guard House

Sunrise at the Guard House

The North Avenue guard house offered a nice setting for a quick pic. Being the offseason, and a workday for many, I had the place nearly to myself. And no, that’s not lens distortion—someone backed into the pole. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Sunrise at […]

Sunrise Bridge No. 2

Sunrise Bridge No. 2

After stopping for the low-angle shot, I paused on the bridge over Lake Shore Drive to enjoy a bit more of the lovely lakeshore sunrise. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Sunrise Bridge No. 2 [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 40mm, 1/60 sec., […]

Sunrise Bridge No. 1

Sunrise Bridge No. 1

I was on a mission to get over to Photography Point. And I had to convince myself to stop. But the structure was too appealing to ignore, and I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to get a silhouette of the pedestrian overpass bridging Lincoln Park […]

Fox Fishing

Fox Fishing

It was cold and windy, yet these two fishermen seemed to be having a good time fishing at the McHenry Dam. Eaves, Chris (Oct. 20, 2018). Fox Fishing [Photograph]. McHenry, Illinois. Shot on self-developed Kodak TX400 taken with a Bronica SQ-A at 80mm.

Conservatory Still Life

Conservatory Still Life

Back inside the Lincoln Park Conservatory, there’s this small square of plant life hanging on the wall. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 6, 2019). Conservatory Still Life [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 79mm, 1/500 sec., f4.5 at ISO2500.

Unsafe Waters

Unsafe Waters

Without a tripod or ND filter, I had to resort to low ISO, wider angle, and propping the camera on my lap. As you’ll see in a few weeks, the next time I was along the lakeshore, I brought along a tripod and a strong […]

The Off Season

The Off Season

A bleak, grey sky and barren trees make this summer hotspot at Montrose Beach seem particularly dismal in the dead of winter. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 6, 2019). The Off Season [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 34mm, 1/200 sec., f4.5 at ISO200.

A Thaw in Relations

This peace sign along Lake Michigan’s shoreline emerges from the snowbanks. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 6, 2019). A Thaw in Relations [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 17mm, 1/500 sec., f5.6 at ISO160.

Girl on the Pond

Girl on the Pond

Wandering into the Lincoln Park Conservatory on a cold, wintery (or spring) day in Chicago is always a nice respite from the elements. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 6, 2019). Girl on the Pond [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 28mm, 1/320 sec., f4.5 at […]

Chicago Neighborhoods No. 1

Chicago Neighborhoods No. 1

I love all the things going on with the front of this house in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. There’s the smirking face, the vine vs. bars in the window, the pine bows replacing grass, and so much character. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 6, 2019). Chicago Neighborhoods […]

Milkweed

Milkweed

Shooting with film is all about choices. There’s an incremental cost with film that digital simply doesn’t have. And with medium format, that shutter press is a commitment to development and scanning. It forces one to slow down and think through the details. On the […]
