Covid-19 Physical Distancing

The Government couldn’t be clearer, strict guidance now introduced to combat our public's lackadaisical approach to social distancing. Deserted streets and closed shops void of people is how it should/could look, not hordes of people crowding the scene on a sunny weekend. I hope people make a conscious effort to respect this worldwide disease epidemic situation we are in and start to toe the line.

Nationwide Shutdown

Government warnings, many people have been calling for lock-down, for some it's been a long time coming, for others it's been a bit of an issue to take on board. Hopefully the majority of UK citizens will comply, and the combined effort has the desired impact to reduce pressure on an already stretched NHS resource.

Stay safe, stay strong, please stop or slow down the spread of a contagious disease #waaitt

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...
