    Gnome Knoll

    Another in my skiing Santa gnome series. I was taking a continuing education photography course at the time and didn’t have any studio lights.

    Known as the “Ruinas del Faro de Guánica,” this abandoned Guánica lighthouse dates back to 1893. I’ve named this photo series “Sentinel” in honor of Robustiano Rivera, who served as lighthouse keeper and alerted the local mayor of the invading American fleet back in 1898.

    Sometimes it pays to look up. I had been working the speakers’ track at Greenfest, and couldn’t resist taking a frame of the rafters and the lights in the beautiful Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier.

  • Monk Tree

    Monk Tree

    I drive by this location occasionally, and the tree on the plain sometimes looks like a tall monk, standing in meditation. Here it is early in the morning on a beautiful autumnal day.

    Boston Playtime

    I was impressed by how active Bostonians are, and how their ability to get out and do things after work doesn’t end at the shoreline. Eaves, Chris (April 24, 2018). Boston Playtime [Photograph]. Location. Shot on an LG G7 at 4.03mm, 1/1300 sec., f1.8, ISO50

    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

    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).

    Hallowed Halls

    Walking through the capitol buildings in Ottawa, there’s a moment when the tour goes from Parliament to the Library of Parliament. I loved the color of light in the hallway, the warmth and texture of the ceiling and the cold and shine of the floor. Eaves, Chris (Sept. 1, 2008). Hallowed Halls [Photograph]. Ottawa, Canada.…

    Chicago River

    At least on this stretch of the Chicago River, tour boat and pleasure craft have replaced the industrial traffic, and the wonderful architecture of the city shines above the waters.
