Some old photos of Ramsgate, some new photos of Canterbury and some boring stuff about my camera/phone.

Why would anyone take lots of pictures of the same place?

Behold today’s old Ramsgate pictures.







Sorry I didn’t post yesterday I was in Canterbury having my day off and when I got home doing a bit of painting and decorating, Sunday evening now any I have just stopped decorating one of our bedrooms.

About three weeks ago I bought cheap mobile phone an “OUKITEL K6000 Pro” these are about £130 on Ebay. I don’t have a phone contract and just have pay as you with a bit of internet as I mostly use wifi and don’t usually phone people up other than using Skype and WhatsApp.

If that sounded incompressible to you then stop reading this.

When I first got this phone I did a blog post about it see http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/camera-and-brush-in-canterbury.html and I have used this phone as my main camera since then. I think it’s a very good phone – the main reason I bought it is because it has a very big battery which doesn’t go flat if I charge it for about an hour every couple of days.



With a folding blue tooth keyboard I can touch type in MS Word on my phone and write this blog, I have used my previous phone as a dummy here as as I took the photo with the new one.  

The camera in the new phone is pretty good and I have been having a dialogue with the manufacturer about improvements for the next software update to make it even better.

So as part of this I took some more photos of Canterbury to show them samples of what I am talking about, essentially they can download the pictures and see the camera settings.

(If you click on the download tab – open the image – three dots top right – download is on the dropdown. If you select more than one image and download them together the files will be compressed so the image quality may be lower. If you then find the image on your commuter – right click on it – select properties – the details tab will give you some camera settings. It will also give you the time I took the photos.)

So here is the link to all the photos I took yesterday, including the ones that went wrong https://goo.gl/photos/z9GDMtD7oe3yk95DA

I wasn’t working in my bookshop yesterday, but the people who work there on Saturdays were, so here is the link to the books they put out on the selves http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/low-flying-aircraft-in-bookshop.html

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.
