Art and Photography in Ramsgate


A few picture from this morning’s walk including all the pictures on The Great Wall of Ramsgate.

My new camera has just arrived and I am getting used to it, so as I always find it difficult to chose things like cameras nowadays I will write a bit about this and photography in general.

I have had a slr camera since I was a teenager, this is the type of camera that you can change the lenses on and when you look through the viewfinder you see out through the camera lens.

This means that you tend to stick with the same make of camera because all of the lenses you bought in the past need to fit your new camera.

Any of you who follow this blog will know that I take a lot of photos so any camera I have takes a fair old beating, my previous camera was a Pentax istD it still works fairly OK but is beginning to show signs of the pounding I have given it.

The new camera I have replaced it with is Pentax K-r digital cameras have come on since I bought the istD and the K-r is I think the best camera I have ever owned, I am still getting used to it and I would say that the results I get from it won’t really become apparent for a while.

Here are The Great Wall of Ramsgate pictures, taken this morning http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/611/ and the ones I took after those http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/611/id3.htm

The new camera is faster than the old one, about as fast as I am, meaning that the picture you see is the one I intended to take, if that makes any sense.

I really can’t tell you how good it is relative to other cameras as you can’t really tell how good a camera is until you have used it for a while, only that for my purposes it is a very good camera.



I don’t know what any of the people who normally look at the pictures I publish think??

  1. I hope all that artwork can be saved when the hoardings are taken down,It would be nice if it was fixed to the turner centre wall to brighten the place up a bit.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
