Nice one Brian!


Comment by dave johnson on 3rd January 2009 at 10:47
Like it or not I bet more photos have been taken of this than any other "NEW" thing introduced into Wigan for a while.


Comment by Brian on 3rd January 2009 at 11:12
True, I've seen a few taking photos. For the record, I like it. ;)


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 3rd January 2009 at 11:31
Much, much better than the one I took, from same viewpoint, with camera on my mobile phone, Brian !!!


Comment by Jo Anne on 3rd January 2009 at 12:38
It has certainly brought new life to that area of Wigan. I have seen some perfect expressions of sheer delight and expressions of pure horror too.
Brilliant photo Brian :o)


Comment by janet on 3rd January 2009 at 14:22
The photo is good enough,not taking anything away from Brian. As for the 'Subject', I'll just say, I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.


Comment by bren on 3rd January 2009 at 17:35
the photo is a cracker, but as for the " subject " i agree with janet, what is it supposed to represent ? someone with half a brain ?


Comment by emps on 3rd January 2009 at 18:02
Odd as it looks, its grown on me I like it, looks incredible from that angle.


Comment by bren on 3rd January 2009 at 20:25
its enough to scare the little un's away from the children's library !!


Comment by Mick on 3rd January 2009 at 22:10
I like this face but its a shame its up a little side street where it wont be seen by many Wiganers or visitors to our town.

If it was me I would have located it where it could be seen by passing traffic.


Comment by Cenac on 4th January 2009 at 19:23
Did they try to site it at the side of the plot first? it's a shame they had to put it over the "maze".


Comment by Art on 5th January 2009 at 00:42
Must be the image of a Wigan planner:
All face, no brain behind!! ;o)

Lived in Wigan ten years ago. This is a nice addition to a nice part of the town.
