Margate Carnival 2013 pictures
Here are the various links to the pictures
Please accept my apologies for a bit of an average job here, I didn’t take my big camera and just a few pictures with a little one and a mobile phone.
I also missed the beginning as I was in The Turner Contemporary chatting to one of the gallery attendants, I like to know how things are going there and I think they seem to be going fairly well at the moment.
The current exhibition seems to be better attended and more appreciated than the previous two, I detected a bit of a feeling that the last one with the projectors that kept breaking down and the previous Emin one (blue woman having difficulty with blue tampon) didn’t do much for visitor numbers.
In my opinion what the gallery lacks at the moment is a big picture – sculpture – the Kiss and the James Webb of Margate filled this bill and at the moment there is a fairly insignificant painting of a servant eavesdropping, some fairly small Turners of birds and of course the pages from the Da Vinci decode, but no big picture. Don’t get me wrong here it’s is an entertaining exhibition worth going to see but this is about me and what I want which is at least one large work of art to wow me.
As you can see from the photos Margate Carnival was pretty good this year
Sorry I also seemed to have messed up publishing the picture folders with three of the links leading to web folders containing 100 pictures from my phone when I only took 200 pictures of the carnival with it.
