Wigan Market
 Wigan Market   by Thomas Walsh  (Canon PowerShot A1200)
Another shot of Wigan Indoor Market.

Comment by Janice on 20th July 2012 at 00:09
Another great shot Thomas. Good exposure and nice and sharp with good colours. The Canon Powershot a1200 is a great little compact and in the right hands, this is what you get! 8/10 Also good foreground detail because I love crisps and Mr Kipling cakes. This comment should keep MOST people happy ;)


Comment by Fred Mason on 20th July 2012 at 00:48
Nice photo, haven't been there for yonks. Very much like the old market hall in design but no atmosphere yet and NO people..!!


Comment by bill 7 on 20th July 2012 at 00:52
Not a great footfall as they say tom


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 20th July 2012 at 03:08
A very pleasing perspective view, Tom.
Mr.Kipling first appeared in 1967 and is only one of several brands of Premier Foods. Refer:- http://www.premierfoods.co.uk/our-brands/
The crisps in the boxes below Mr.Kipling are dearer than B & M.
Not a man in sight and all three ladies in the aisle are wearing trousers!!
What time of day was it Tom?


Comment by MikeW on 20th July 2012 at 06:19
Cleaner and more hygenic than the old one, brighter than the old one, more spacious than the old one, warmer than the old one, safer than the old one. Someone tell me why exactly the old one was, as many in here claim superior because I am finding it difficult to think of a single practical and realistic reason why.


Comment by peterp on 20th July 2012 at 06:44
Looks busy,no wonder they dont allow cameras into the market hall(naughty boy Thomas)to show how empty it is


Comment by Mick on 20th July 2012 at 06:49
Her look like she likes a pie. Her heading for crisp


Comment by Helen on 20th July 2012 at 08:14
I think you are looking for the word...ATMOSPHERE..MikeW.


Comment by Ron D on 20th July 2012 at 08:51
Agree with MikeW.A Lot of folk prefer the dark ages.This pick is better exposed ,and the perspective is better. I like living picks that show us life ,not deprivation .
6---10.

How often have you been to the top of the steps inside of this market with your eyes open Mike W as the counters are full of dirt all that empty space above doin nowt how many FISH stalls and BUTCHERS, FRUIT SELLERS but there is a lot of CAFE'S with a lot of people in even though there are people with know money hate this market hall with a passion only go in when we have to.No character what so ever.Who ever designed this must live in BOLTON .
