Sketch at the Pav aka Wetherspoons Ramsgate a few local archive photos

Not being an artist but more a sort of sketcher I have to do quite a few preliminary sketches to get everything to fit together.
 Colour wise this one looked like this in Wetherspoons, but when I got it home it looks like the the photo of it at the top of the post, something to do with the lighting I suppose.

I have been checking the prices of woodworking books for most of the day, I'm on the tool catalogues next week, which are much more difficult. Book wise I am reading Ursula Le Guin's The Word for World is Forest, which is very good and on the non fiction front something about Socrates, who of course didn't write anything himself. Philosophy's martyr and so on. Also brushing up stuff I learnt in order to become a sort of mechanic around 50 years ago. Bookshop wise a fairly eclectic lot went out including some of the more difficult railway books for this area.

Here is the link to the photos of the books

I think at the moment they are mostly in the shop window on the way to the shelves.

A few historic Thanet pictures next

Oh and the lights were on in what was the community cafe wosisname in King St when I came back from the Pav, so something may ao may not happen there.

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.
