An optical delusion in Ramsgate, I delve in to the realms of the deep and meaningless and some old pictures of Ramsgate, Margate and Broadstairs.

I just linked this post to various Facebook groups, you don't even want to think about what Facebook does to the photo above

 The difference between an optical illusion and an optical delusion here in Ramsgate in 1806   

To quote Albert Einstein.
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Obviously there are two types of glass to look through in these circumstances. And no sorry I still don't know the difference  between an optical illusion and an optical delusion.

I skived off to the Pav aka Spoons for brunch today
Very tough paper so fiddling with populating the car park
I'm fascinated by aspects of sketching something while looking down on it.

 the crane is back so hopefully the crosswall swing bridge will soon be working again.

This evening's snapshots, you know the sloping horizons. the near misses etc. in my own defence I don't necessarily stop walking here is the link 

It's the nose that worries me

Post a Comment

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.
