  • Urban photography, industrial building, Edinburgh location

Part of the city's industrial heritage: Recognisable from a mile away, this riveted rolled steel construction is ear-marked as an illuminated feature of the Edinburgh skyline overlooking the Forth, the column guided gasholders external framework could shine like a diamond if plans go ahead.

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...
