Around 200 out and about photos of Ramsgate today and some shops and shopping thoughts.


Links to the photos first



Watching a charity shop volunteer today, who I think was a considerable age, fighting with a touch screen till that would have defeated many a 20 year old geek and considering that in the commercial world it just wouldn’t be viable to pay someone a living wage to waste a large proportion of their worktime I wondered just where the world of shops is heading.

As you can see I have been out learning more about how to use the Nikon P90 bridge camera, I think it will be some time before I naturally get the horizon horizontal, mainly because I mostly take snapshots. What I mean by this is that out and about I mostly set cameras on automatic, with the focus set on landscape and either don’t stop walking or stop very briefly to take the photos.

This sort of develops, as you get used to a camera, to snapping what interests you eye. If the light is fairly good then I seldom use a DSLR because it is the type of camera most emulated by mobile phone cameras. Based on the SLR film camera which came along because they fitted 35mm movie film the SLR concept is better suited to film than a digital sensor.    

My underlying idea here is to produce strips of pictures which would have been difficult or impossible to take with your phone.

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.
