Richborough Power Station demolition watercolour sketch

I thought I had better record the event as best as I could in my sketchbook, I don’t know about other people, but for me there was a sense of unreality about this thirty second event. Almost as though it wasn’t something that was really happening anyway I don’t really have the right words, so here is the picture.

  1. This is your 6th post since you were thinking of quitting blogging on Wednesday Michael! ; )

  2. Almost shed a small tear as they went down, a strange atmosphere as we walked back to Richborough Fort, almost going home from a funeral !!

  3. Peter I am not so much considering quitting, as doing something with a wider interest than just Thanet, probably more related to sketching than writing as I enjoy it more. Watercolour is something of a challenge, which I think will amuse me for some time.

    Bit of an odd one 10.05, it was so much representative of what the place looks like.

  4. Michael, Don't leave! What will anonymouse do without you!? Besides, I'll miss you too.


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.
