Mostly Margate, Dreamland, Turner Contemporary, some photos

I took the day off today and went to Margate, started with "Portfolio" exhibition at Turner contemporary, the photos in this post are only representative I will put a link to the rest at the end of the post.

On to revisit the main exhibition. The Waterhouse is till my fave in this.

Sat in the shade of the wall over a cuppa and sketched a rather tall Droit House for a bit.

Then on to Dreamland, much improved with the new wristband and token arrangements, I think from the ratio of people walking around, people waiting for rides and people riding they have this just about right.

Back in the day when I worked for Chipperfields fair this was regulated by adjusting the prices of the rides, Jimmy Chipperfield was a professional showman and Dreamland had that sort of look about it today.

 Margate Sands were reasonaby busy too

Back to the gallery where I did a bit more to the watercolour of Old Kent Market

For the rest of the photos, all the ones on my phone today, click on the link

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.
