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 […]

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 […]
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. Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Sunrise Chicago [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on […]
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 […]
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 bent the emulsion. I later learnt how to avoid this mistake. I’ll have to go back sometime in the future and try my hand at recreating this shot.

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. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 29, 2018). Power Tower No. 3 [Photograph]. Addison, Illinois. […]
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.

The final entry in this 4-part series, we return to Cary, Illinois. The rusted-tin roof of this low-slung outbuilding marked a gathering spot for some kind of local hike. The foundation of a long-gone building sits in the foreground. Eaves, Chris (Oct. 13, 2018). Americana Still […]
