Sunset Strip and the crazy hexagons.

It’s been a week of car problems and map problems most of which are pretty much resolved now, the car has a complicated air-conditioning and cooling system and in this weather some degree of fiddling about getting the inside of the car cool and keeping the coolant in the engine was required.

The map on the other hand, the 1849 coloured map of Ramsgate, click on the link to view http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/map1849/ is something fo a task in tems of an affordable reprint that wont fade.

I went over to the north part of the isle on Wednesday evening and spent a fair amount of time trying to capture the sunset with the camera, for the results click on the links.

I will delete the worst of them when I get around to it, for some reason my camera would like to make the sun hexagonal, possibly something to do with the lens aperture.
No wonder Turner liked our sunsets, this one was not particularly spectacular as sunsets here go but still amazing enough.

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.
