Some old photos of Ramsgate, some new photos of Canterbury and some boring stuff about my camera/phone.

Why would anyone take lots of pictures of the same place?

Behold today’s old Ramsgate pictures.

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday I was in Canterbury having my day off and when I got home doing a bit of painting and decorating, Sunday evening now any I have just stopped decorating one of our bedrooms.

About three weeks ago I bought cheap mobile phone an “OUKITEL K6000 Pro” these are about £130 on Ebay. I don’t have a phone contract and just have pay as you with a bit of internet as I mostly use wifi and don’t usually phone people up other than using Skype and WhatsApp.

If that sounded incompressible to you then stop reading this.

When I first got this phone I did a blog post about it see and I have used this phone as my main camera since then. I think it’s a very good phone – the main reason I bought it is because it has a very big battery which doesn’t go flat if I charge it for about an hour every couple of days.

With a folding blue tooth keyboard I can touch type in MS Word on my phone and write this blog, I have used my previous phone as a dummy here as as I took the photo with the new one.  

The camera in the new phone is pretty good and I have been having a dialogue with the manufacturer about improvements for the next software update to make it even better.

So as part of this I took some more photos of Canterbury to show them samples of what I am talking about, essentially they can download the pictures and see the camera settings.

(If you click on the download tab – open the image – three dots top right – download is on the dropdown. If you select more than one image and download them together the files will be compressed so the image quality may be lower. If you then find the image on your commuter – right click on it – select properties – the details tab will give you some camera settings. It will also give you the time I took the photos.)

So here is the link to all the photos I took yesterday, including the ones that went wrong

I wasn’t working in my bookshop yesterday, but the people who work there on Saturdays were, so here is the link to the books they put out on the selves

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
