  • Noir Log Cabin

    Noir Log Cabin

    Final photo from Galena, Illinois. The bright red neon sign of Log Cabin Fine Foods bathes the street in scarlet. Converting the image to black and white tells a better tale of a calm night on the town.

  • Crosswalk Stare Down

    Crosswalk Stare Down

    Not everyone is a fan of street photography, and as a photographer, practicing this part of the art remains uncomfortable. These margins of skill discomfort, though, provide us the space we need for growth and adaptation—perfect reasons to explore discomfort! Eaves, Chris (Feb. 20, 2020). Crosswalk Stare Down [Photograph]. Chicago, Ill. Shot on a Canon…

  • Adams Street Bridge

    Adams Street Bridge

    The sun poked through at just the right moment to illuminate a few pedestrians crossing the Adams Street Bridge. Eaves, Chris (Feb. 20, 2020). Adams Street Bridge [Photograph]. Chicago, Ill. Shot on a Canon 6D at 35mm, 1/100 sec., f5 at ISO125.

  • Passing Through

    Passing Through

    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, Chris (May 20, 2019). Passing Through [Photograph]. Elgin, Ill. Shot on…

  • B&W Studies, No. 5

    B&W Studies, No. 5

    Photo no. 5 in my new 14 image series. For a moment here we’re going to hop a few states south for a shot of northwest Arkansas. Those of you who follow me know I love a good S-curve in photography. It should be not a surprise, then, for you to learn that every time…

  • 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 fares. I’m still a bit bitter about it. The ride…

  • Flower Girl

    Flower Girl

    NOLA series, part 11 of 17.  I’ll admit, I have no clue what this lady was doing. She rode up on this sweet, monogear retro bike with holiday lighting in the front wheel and fake flowers and then stopped for a while on the corner here.  Eaves, Chris (March 23, 2019). Flower Girl [Photograph]. New…

  • Killarney


    While crossing this road twenty-one years ago, I pointed a Canon Rebel G at the cars, shoppes and people. Today you can visit that same street via Google Maps. Thanks to the Redditors at /r/Ireland for the help in reminding me this was Killarney. Eaves, Chris (March, 1998). Killarney [Photograph]. Killarney, Ireland. Shot on a…

  • 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…

  • Haeger Water Tower

    Haeger Water Tower

    One of the more valuable parts of the property is the water tower, which was sold (I was told) to a company in California for $750,000. Originally the town or the company was thinking of tearing it down, but it was valuable as a cell phone service site. At least part of the property is…

  • Loop Commuter

    Loop Commuter

    Scooting by with the flow of traffic in the Chicago “Loop”, the man is looking at the remote to his electric skateboard. Eaves, Chris (July 27, 2018). Loop Commuter [Photograph]. Chicago, Illinois. Shot on a Canon 6D at 40mm, 1/250 sec., f5.0, ISO800

  • Hilton


    The looming, imposing presence of the Hilton Hotel in San Francisco doesn’t get any favors from the dusky darkness after sundown. Eaves, Chris (Nov. 13, 2015). Hilton [Photograph]. San Francisco, California. Shot on a Canon 6D at 17mm, 1/30 sec., f16, ISO1000

  • You Are Here

    You Are Here

    I’m not much of a street photographer, and my family doesn’t really “get” why I like this photo. Maybe it’s the Catholic schoolboys exploring the Quarter and how it reminds me of my scouting days. Or maybe it’s the painting of a cat wearing a tie and playing the trumpet that reminds me of my…

  • Chicken Delivery

    Chicken Delivery

    San Franscisco’s Chinatown should be on everyone’s “bucket list.” Here we see a delivery of live chickens for a shop. Eaves, Chris (Nov. 13, 2015). Chicken Delivery [Photograph]. San Francisco, California. Shot on a Canon 6D at 40mm, 1/60 sec., f9.0, ISO100.
