Rubbish photography, a waste of time.

Photo detail: Trash on the street, a lone figure walking by a pile of discarded litter, March 2019.

Prior to the image being taken it had/was a bit gusty, trying to pick the moment where the pedestrian walked past at the time the loose garbage was picked up and swirled in a mini cyclone just didn’t pan out. 5 minutes later the wind picked up again, but the moment had passed and an opportunity missed.


The Calibrated Eye | A photography blog by John Gilchrist 

Photography genres that are general in nature, images and inspiration for anyone interested in exploring a photographers’ blogging space. 

This is the spot on the website where you can check out some of my random blogging topics and view all the things that I enjoy taking pictures of when I am not photographing weddings and the like. An informal weblog, it's not an educational blog, so don't expect too much in the way of expert photography tips and techniques or qualified reviews on cameras, lenses and the latest photography gear, it's more of an outlet to channel some latest activity or reflect on and recycle past images. 

I spy with my trained eye...
