Old Thanet Photos, New Thanet Photos, Painting and drawing, Click to expand


 these next 2 won't expand much 

but interested me

Next a selection from my photos for

the last week

Changed sketch pad today, so here is what's in the old one

+ the loose sheets

Very much been a painting and drawing week mostly sitting on the sun deck of wetherspoons.

We did venture into Canterbury for a bit as you can see from the photos. Now we are both fully vaccinated we are taking a more relaxed approach to going out. However with all the conflicting information Boris Johnson's plan which seems to be 200 day dying by mid August we are still remaining pretty cautious.

I was going to to open the bookshop in August but at the moment I think this is unlikely mainly because of the relaxation of the compulsory mask rule. 

As any of you who use it will know no the bookshop is basically lot of very narrow passageways.

Second-hand book shops always attract people with an unusual mindset and where is I'm absolutely happy dealing with the Australian contingent of the flat earth society frankly I just don't fancy trying to regulate entrance to the bookshop in a way that would make it safe for our customers so we remain shut unless anyone has a fantastic idea.

As I said before such blogging as I am doing is happening very quickly and the written text it's done entirely by voice recognition so it's a bit peculiar to read and I may sort it out later. 

Apologies for my minimal interaction with the internet recently. I have had a lot of other things to do.

  1. Hello, It's been 7 months since the last online post, I wonder what may have happened to Micheal, nothing tragic I trust. An update or even a last word would be welcome to those who're interested and care. Have you heard anything at all?


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.
