Looking down on old Ramsgate

While this picture should expand when you click on it, I am endeavouring to force the rest a bit size wise, so they probably won’t.
 These are parts of the bigger picture at the top
 one thing about old photos is that some of them are contact prints.
To those of you who have never played about in the darkroom, this means that the negative film from the camera was the same size as the photo and instead of using an enlarger the film was just put on top of the photographic paper and exposed to light.

  This is from a different picture, but this means you can blow up little bits of the picture like an early crime investigator. 

With the pre digital photography you don’t have pixels to contend with but stuff called emulsion, which is a bit like little light sensitive particles in jelly, so when you enlarge pictures you get fuzzy edges.

Post a Comment

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.
