Some Ramsgate photography this evening

On from yesterdays post (click on previous post link at the bottom) this post is about taking hand held snapshots while walking about. The compromise being a secondhand camera that is cheap enough and small enough to keep in your pocket, but good enough to take pictures that can’t be taken with a mobile phone’s camera.

So having tried and failed I have now managed to master the manual focus control, this boils down to if you can’t set a camera’s focus on infinity it is very difficult to take snapshots.

So lots of experimental shots in fairly dull conditions that are not best suited to hand held long zoom, but good for experimental shots. This sort of photography is a bit like pistol shooting inasmuch as the idea is that the camera has to become an extension of you arm. At the moment the evolution of my arm is still underway, but hopefully it will eventually reach a peak or two.

Here are the links to the photos

I hope think the shots are in order so you can work out the where from aspect

On the work front, here are the photos of the books that went out in the bookshop today

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.
