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 […]
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.
- Eaves, Chris (March 24, 2019). Skate Park [Photograph]. Chalmette, Louisiana. Shot on Canon 6D at 40mm, 1/400 sec., f5.6 at ISO50.
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.
Enjoy the textures and light of this still life.

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 […]
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.
- 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.
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.
