This view of the Skykomish River can be found on Route 2. Most people only catch a glimpse of the river and bridge. At least the guardrail gave me some peace of mind as I walked along the roadway to get this shot. Skykomish River, […]
Photo no. 11 in my new 14 image series. Another photo from my favorite under-the-highway spot, this time looking in the opposite direction. Traffic is fairly frequent on the road here, so it’s just a matter of time before a good subject comes along. Eaves, […]
Photo nos. 9 and 10 in my new 14 image series. Today we revisit a place I’d previously shot back in 2018. In that image, I’d focused on the summer sun’s rays slicing through the symmetry (but not quite perfectly). This winter I went back […]
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.

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, […]
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.

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.

Another view of the 113-year-old bridge in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The first time I attempted to photograph the bridge, I made a horrible mess of the development cycle. I didn’t wind the reel properly, and I lost most of the frames.
The 46-foot span creates some interesting compositions as traffic flows past. Here’s one with a Lindahl crane.
