  1. Hi, So I've edited the first 12 days of Lockdown here in Tenerife and made a gallery on my website. Lockdown here is very specific and restrictive so we can only leave the apartment to go to the Supermarket, Pharmacy, Doctors, Bins, or walk the dog(We don't have a dog!). Anyone found out without good reason gets heavily fined, and one guy has gone to jail for repeat offending... Anyway here's the gallery: https://www.philcrean.com/lockdown_days I will probably now add new pics on a daily basis. Phil
  2. I'll just say this is the best explanation I've seen... https://thespinoff.co.nz/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Covid-19-Transmission-graphic-01.gif?fbclid=IwAR1zqOwKIigqBReBEHUVY3WUir4PTxVvZIE5SzjZy379LG5tl62lNL3GMlM The virus doesn't move. People move. Therefore halt movement = halt the virus. Phil
  3. Do you know 100% for sure that you are not carrying the virus? If not then act as if you were a carrier and don't want to spread it... Phil
  4. That is the big problem with the UK regs.... it seems they have learned nothing from the last three months... Phil
  5. But it's not essential work... nobody depends on it for their life... That is what is meant by essential,... Things like food, medicine, sanitation, caring for vulnerable people...These are essential... Phil
  6. No they're not exactly the same... We cannot go out except for essential reasons as I said... ie: no going out for exercise..no driving to a destination cause we're bored... no going out in pairs or family groups... Phil
  7. Yes that could be... if two in a car then 1 in front 1 in back behind passenger seat to maintain max separation... Sounds daft for partners who are otherwise getting as close as they want in the home, but that's the law outside and no exceptions... Phil
  8. At least here in Tenerife, Spain, we know exactly what is meant... Essential travel is; Going to the supermarket, pharmacy, medical centre, to work ,where it is permitted, to home, to assist vulnerable people. Fines are being handed out and one guy from Santa Cruz just got a 6 month jail sentence for repeat offending. I've been stopped twice whilst taking out the bins, and going to the supermarket, both essential journeys! We all here wish that the UK government were as clear. Phil
  9. Who, What, Where, When, How... The 5 basics of any good caption, from which you can extrapolate keywords/tags... Phil
  10. https://scontent-mad1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/90697677_3139056056105872_659877190514507776_o.jpg?_nc_cat=104&_nc_sid=2d5d41&_nc_ohc=XaqJYT6Id-sAX-7Oa3N&_nc_ht=scontent-mad1-1.xx&oh=956aa27d8b836a14fb8166941a718c8d&oe=5E9FB742 Phil
  11. Here's my favorite version... https://youtu.be/CQpoLUPSa1U Phil
  12. From a walk we did on Thursday 12th March, last one before the lockdown.... Wild fennel with the Teide volcano behind. Phil
  13. Tip for anyone on Adobe subscription... I just went into my account and contacted them via live chat and asked how they could help as my work has totally dried up due to crisis and they gave me a 60 days free on my account. I pay annually so they just extended the next payment date 2 months ahead... Phil
  14. Eight days into lockdown. Only allowed out for essential reasons, so been to the supermarket 3 times, alone as only 1 person allowed per car unless doing essential work then 2 and they must both be wearing masks, which you can't get as there are no supplies in chemists, and 1 driving, passenger in back seat. We take it in turns to go to the bins daily. The apartment is getting a really deep clean... In an effort to try and generate a bit more income as all my commissioned work has come to an abrupt halt I've been on my website and set up a gallery of Tenerife Landscape prints which can be ordered for delivery by mail, fulfilled by a UK based printer. As the week goes on I'll be going through my archives to add more; here if anyone wants to take a look... https://www.philcrean.com/tenerife_landscape_prints I'm making photos of us going about our daily activities and views from the windows and terrace to make a record of these unusual times, not sure yet what I'll do with them, not for stock, but I may try and make a book at the end of this time. I'm also playing with using luminosity masks and the history brush to work on landscape photos, a la Alister Benn, see him on youtube at expressive photography, interesting techniques... Might set up some still life if the inspiration strikes! Just heard now that Sanchez has asked the parliament to extend the state of emergency for a further 15 days, which will take it through to 12th April... Looks like I'll be adding an indoor keep fit regime to the list! Stay safe all... Phil
  15. Kenny Rogers the well known singer has died at 81. I just found out he was also a talented photographer.. Kenny Rogers Photographer Phil
  16. Here in Tenerife under lockdown, State of alarm controls. Only allowed out to go directly to and from supermarkets, pharmacy, bank, walk the dog, or other essential work related travel. One person per car. All hotels to close from next Tuesday.... Am trying to get permission to go out and photograph the situation but not sure how that will pan out. Airports will close after the last tourists have left, except for connections to the other islands and the peninsula. I'm learning some new editing skills...Luminosity layers, and doing some other web site updating etc. Hopefully we'll all get out in the end to better world. Phil
  17. Shopping in Mercadona on Saturday, just before the lockdown, Tenerife, Spain Phil

  19. Here we go... Typical grey day in Lima, Peru. Teide obscured by calima, sand storm from the Sahara, Tenerife. Walking over the Tongariro Alpine crossing, New Zealand. Phil
