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

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.
