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 […]

Bayou Stroll

Bayou Stroll

The Bayou St. John is a lovely little area of New Orleans. Like much of the city, people watching is a fun experience, and people from all walks of life wander through the area. When I look at this photo, I wonder if they are […]

Mississippi Oil

Mississippi Oil

Part 2 of 17 in the New Orleans series

When we think of the Mighty Mississippi, we often think of barges and steamboats. But head to the lower Mississippi River, and you’ll see ocean-going vessels like this one. Between Baton Rouge and the Gulf, the US Army Corps of Engineers maintains a 45-foot shipping channel for these larger ships, and it’s impressive watching them push upstream.

Levee

Levee

Today kicks off a 17-part New Orleans series! As many of you know, I don’t settle for any one particular type of style. I take what interests me, and I publish what I think others might enjoy. And I’m often surprised at what resonates with […]

Wild Teasel

Wild Teasel

OK, we’re back to a digital photo for a moment as we stick with prairie flora. Unlike my recent Milkweed post, this Wild Teasel is an invasive species that’s here to stay. Eaves, Chris (Aug. 18, 2018). Wild Teasel [Photograph]. Barrington, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D […]

Morning in Lincoln Park

Morning in Lincoln Park

Sunrise flaring on the lens adds a nice touch to the stillness of the scene. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Morning in Lincoln Park [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 36mm, 1/30 sec., f13 at ISO50.

Sunrise Chicago

Sunrise Chicago

A full-color version of a similar photo published here on June 7. One advantage of shooting sunrise shots in winter is you don’t have to get up insanely early to snag a nice shot.

Grey Chicago

Grey Chicago

Definitely not an “original” composition here, as I literally took it at a place called “Photography Point.” Nonetheless, I love this spot when the early-morning sun hits the buildings just-so. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Grey Chicago [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at […]

Power Tower No. 4

Power Tower No. 4

The final image of this mini-series … here we’re looking straight up the gut of the tower. I really struggled with loading this role of Kodak onto the development reel in the darkroom. You can plainly see in the middle of the frame where I […]

Power Tower No. 3

Power Tower No. 3

I love the complexities of something so ubiquitous that we take it for granted. Again, you can see all kinds of scratches and imperfections on the emulsion. Nevertheless, I like the imperfections and the grain.

Power Tower No. 2

Power Tower No. 2

Here’s a look at the arms of the power tower. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 29, 2018). Power Tower No. 2 [Photograph]. Addison, Illinois. Shot on self-developed Kodak TMX100 taken with a Bronica SQ-A at 80mm.  

Power Tower No. 1

Power Tower No. 1

Back into medium format photos, and the first of 4 industrial shots over in Addison, Illinois. Here we see a plane on approach to O’Hare. You can see where I scratched the emulsion in the lower-right corner. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 29, 2018). Power Tower No. 1 [Photograph]. […]

Quaker Wheel

Quaker Wheel

Walking through the Lincoln Park Conservancy is a bit like stepping back in time. Built in the 1890s, the metal and glass structure retains much of its 19th Century charm. Spotting this wheel and chain from Quaker City Machine Co., I felt like I was on the set of an Indiana Jones movie, complete with the satirical directional arrows painted on by an enraged engineer.

The Canon 6D really does hold up well to high ISO settings, and much of the film grain you see here was added in post to give the image a more dated quality to match the age of the machinery.

  • Eaves, Chris (Feb. 6, 2019). Quaker Wheel [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 79mm, 1/200 sec., f4.5, ISO4000
