Power Grid

Power Grid

We’ve reached the final post in my New Orleans Travel Series. The city gets a bad rap in a lot of ways, but if you were to wager if a home in New Orleans had more power outages than my home in the NW suburbs […]

Peeling Light

Peeling Light

NOLA series, part 16 of 17.  I wandered around the City Park neighborhood a bit with a red filter on the camera to see how I liked shooting with it for black and white shots. As always, there’s a ton of character around New Orleans, […]

Skate Park

Skate Park

NOLA series, part 15 of 17. 

So much to look at in this photo, with tricks, falls in process, breakdowns and, well, I’m not even sure what some of them are even doing.

The 907

The 907

NOLA series, part 12 of 17.  Having not ridden the streetcars much, we made a crucial mistake and hopped on the line here, only to be told to get off 2 stops later at the end of the line and forced to completely repay our […]

Cracking a Window

Cracking a Window

Part 9 of 17.  This back porch in New Orleans offers great ventilation, but not much in the way of water or bug protection.  Eaves, Chris (March 23, 2019). Cracking a Window [Photograph]. New Orleans, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D at 70mm, 1/4000 sec., f4 […]

Part 8 of 17.

Front Porch

Front Porch

Part 7 of 17.  When the plantation was built, the Mississippi River would have been visible from here. The levee blocks the view now, but we can pretend.  Eaves, Chris (March 25, 2019). Front Porch [Photograph]. Vacherie, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D at 17mm, 1/100 […]

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 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.

  • Eaves, Chris (Sept. 29, 2018). Power Tower No. 4 [Photograph]. Addison, Illinois. Shot on self-developed Kodak TMX100 taken with a Bronica SQ-A at 80mm.

 

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

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.

Atop Starved Rock

Atop Starved Rock

After a trip to the wonderful Lodge at Starved Rock State Park, we take our obligatory hike up the infamous hill, look out at the Illinois River, and ponder life in the era of canoes and trappers. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 22, 2018). Atop Starved Rock […]

Three … two … one.

Three … two … one.

OK, so this watch doesn’t actually spin backward, but the focus is on the 3 and fades as it gets farther away from it in the focal plane. Eaves, Chris (March 22, 2008). Three … two … one. [Photograph]. Peoria, Illinois (studio). Shot on a […]

Morning Jog in Lincoln Park

Morning Jog in Lincoln Park

A jogger passes the portal.

  • Eaves, Chris (March 29, 2019). Morning Jog in Lincoln Park [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on Canon 6D at 39mm, 1/60 sec., f14 at ISO400.
