Building the wind farm, T V Bond Ramsgate and Broadstairs photos from 2009 and aspects of digital and Herne Bay yesterday

Just what constitutes local history photos and how badly one can maintain a digital camera all come into this post, but I think I will start with aspects of Ramsgate retail.

I would imagine that most people have noticed the TV Bond manhole covers and so on around Thanet.
I think the sign above the counter says so much about independent retail everywhere

So having meandered through the day in the bookshop, finding ways that people and the books they want can be joined up, wondering vaguely at one point if it would be possible to have an adult proof children's books section.

Here is the link to the pictures of the books we put out today 

Back in 2009 I encountered the digital zoom problem

Armed with various zoom and mirror lenses I attempted to photograph the construction of the windfarm.

This is the link to the rest of the pictures

Bond, panes windfarm etc

The net result of all of this was a DSLR with a sensor like a windscreen with bugs on it, eventually fried in alcohol and revived.

Eventually I discovered the bridge camera all of the following shots take in Herne Bay yesterday with the Canon S3 IS, no attachments, click on them to expand

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.
