Turner Contemporary Gallery From the Air

Lovely day for flying and if you were in Margate a little earlier, then you might have noticed me sitting over the Turner Contemporary Gallery, taking photographs. Here's a couple of these for your interest (copyright of course and more if you follow the link) and I will be posting a complete panorama of the town as an online link to Flickr, at some point in the near future.

One other interesting point this afternoon was the airspace map for the Olympics in 2012. Basically, all airspace from a north south line from the Isle of Sheppey all the way to Farnborough in the West and almost to Brighton, will be restricted airspace and may very likely be a death blow to General Aviation, flying schools et al, in this country at the height of the busy summer season. Manston is outside this restricted zone and in a very favourable spot indeed to take advantage of the Games.

beautiful shots I love the one of the gallery and I am so envious. I bet it was nice up there today.

Hope you haven't forgotten your invitation elsewhere to actually visit the old town instead of just photographing it from the air. You might even be impressed.

IPad predictive text is such a pain!

n case it escaped your attention, iIt was where I was when I wrote Margate's Looking Up a few days ago and again this morning. In fact I'm there rather more than you might think!

I rather wonder what you think a councillor does? It's not a full time job although it seems that way at times!

Simon why don’t you just turn predictive text of? It should be under something like Setting/General/Keyboard/Auto-Correction/off.
