    All in a Row

    Back in 2006 I visited Toronto while I considered a Ph.D. program in Marketing. While there, I saw this new housing development and couldn’t resist taking a photo of the low winter sun illuminating the townhomes.

    Sphere Regression

    We’re almost to the end of my Montreal series. Today brings us part 9 of 10. The clear acrylic panels of the Montreal Biosphere burned away in a fire back in 1976, but the structure remains. Today it houses exhibits on climate, as well as this interesting sphere-within-a-sphere lounge. Eaves, Chris (Aug. 30, 2018). Sphere…

    Rooftops & Rings

    Welcome to my Montreal series! Today is part 8 of 10. We’re back above ground for the rest of the series. I hope you enjoy! As you can see, we’re back above ground, atop our hotel in the heart of downtown Montreal. Eaves, Chris (Aug. 29, 2018). Rooftops & Rings [Photograph]. Montreal, Canada. Shot on…

    Metro Series, No. 3: Sortie Solitaire

    Welcome to my Montreal series! Today is part 7 of 10, and the final image in a mini-Metro series within my Montreal montage. The efficiency of the Metro is amazing. This photo wasn’t taken in the middle of the night. We had just missed a train, so the platform was clear. In a few minutes,…

    Metro Series, No. 2: Metro Abstractions

    Welcome to my Montreal series! Today is part 6 of 10, and we’re in the middle of mini-Metro series amid it all. Today’s pic is all about textures and shapes. What I realized most when looking back at the photos from the trip is that I really, really liked carrying around the 6D with just…

    Metro Series, No. 1: Pairings

    Today welcomes part 5 of 10 in my Montreal series. The Underground in Montreal fills a special place in my heart. It’s no secret that I don’t like the sun, but this subway system is better than any other I’ve been in. It makes New York City’s subway look like something from the Flintstones. We’re…

  • Molson Beach

    Molson Beach

    Today marks part 4 of 10 in my Montreal series. OK, the name of this is really Plage de l’Horloge, or Clock Beach in my native tongue. I’m taking artistic license here and calling it Molson Beach instead. Sadly I just realized that I didn’t actually have any Molsons while in Montreal. I guess I’ll…

    Summer Daydreams

    Today is part 3 of 10 in my Montreal series. Coming from Chicago with its lake, Montreal does well with the fast-flowing river at its doorstep. Here’s the typical idyllic scene of Quebec in all its mid-Summer glory. The first two photos in this series were both analog shots, and I have a rather nice…

  • Old Montreal

    Old Montreal

    Today is part 2 of 10 in my Montreal series. We walked or took the Metro everywhere, and it was quite liberating to be free of a car and all that driving entails. Old Montreal was busy in that good sort of way. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 1, 2018). Old Montreal [Photograph]. Montreal, Canada. Shot on…

    Picking Peppers

    Welcome to my Montreal series! Today is part 1 of 10, including a mini-Metro series in the middle of it. I hope you enjoy! Today we start with a trip to the Jean Talon Market. It was a grey day, but perfect for wandering around on foot. The market is a visual delight and a…

  • Left Leaning

    Left Leaning

    Another shot from that 2008 trip to Canada’s capital. The tower, known as Peace Tower, is so tall (302ft) that craning your neck is almost a given. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 1, 2008). Left Leaning [Photograph]. Ottawa, Canada. Shot on a Canon Digital Rebel XTi at 40mm, 1/50 sec., f22, ISO100

    Parliament

    Here’s another photo from our trip to Canada’s capital, this time of the Centre Block. Looking back at these older photos, it’s easy to see the mistakes I made, such as shooting at f22 and having some dust in or on the lens, framing, etc. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 1, 2008). Parliament [Photograph]. Ottawa, Canada. Shot…
