Wetter than an Otter's pocket
 Wetter than an Otter's pocket   by Dave (Oy)  (Fujifilm X100)
We had some rain in September!

Comment by David Fairclough on 8th October 2012 at 00:29
Nicely done Dave, I almost feel like I'm getting wet


Comment by Ken R on 8th October 2012 at 00:32
Nice drop of rain it seems to have washed all the colours away except for the Auntie Nellies


Comment by Janice on 8th October 2012 at 00:44
Another great shot Dave. Great contrast and use of colour popping and some excellent reflections. Just goes to show - don't put your camera away when it rains. Also a very nice view of Wigan


Comment by Art on 8th October 2012 at 01:15
Wait for the accusation of "Fiddlin'" from 'you know who', Dave ;o)

BTW, Brill pic!!


Comment by Deb on 8th October 2012 at 04:14
Great photo, love the pink umbrella's in the black and white picture.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 8th October 2012 at 05:32
Wow that is a bit wet. Nice touch with the pink umbrellas. I guess you are all coming into winter as we are into spring right now. Our summer starts the 1st of December and it will probably be a scorcher. It took me quite a while to get used to saying December was quite warm.that is what you get I suppose for living on the bottom of the world!!!! Cheers


Comment by peterp on 8th October 2012 at 08:20
Wigan at its worse not very inviting to shoppers,cold &wet


Comment by Ron D on 8th October 2012 at 08:35
Very nice


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 8th October 2012 at 09:10
Dave, where does your caption come from? - never met it before.
Have tried to find the amount of rainfall in Sept.in Wigan, but without success.
Ken R, please explain "Auntie Nellie`s".


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 8th October 2012 at 09:31
The chap who sells `stuff` for making soap bubbles, in front of the Grand Arcade, is nowhere in sight !!


Comment by jamie on 8th October 2012 at 12:15
I think dave's caption comes from the old channel 4 show - Bo' Selecta the Mel B spoof used to refare to her intimate feminine region as being 'wetter than an otters pocket!'


Comment by David Barker on 8th October 2012 at 12:59
One thing for sure umbrella salesmen/women, will never be out of work in Britain,like the contrast Dave.


Comment by Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 8th October 2012 at 13:35
Ernest.. re the Auntie Nellies I think Ken's referring to the umbrellas.


Comment by Catherine on 8th October 2012 at 13:35
Makes me homesick that photo! Another great one Oy.


Comment by Al.C. on 8th October 2012 at 14:21
You got the angle just right on this Dave, feel as if I'm walking into the frame.


Comment by Janet on 8th October 2012 at 14:46
Al.C. That's what it is ... I liked the pic, black and white, pop of colour with the pink umbrellas, etc etc, but there was something else that I couldn't quite figure out.. You said it, I felt like I was right there in the frame...Great pic Dave...


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 8th October 2012 at 15:14
Brilliant picture Dave (again)
There`s something about the "old" B/W photo`s........Lovely.this one will go in "my favourites"


Comment by john on 8th October 2012 at 18:00
well done dave , great stuff that monochrome ,i have some rolls left to shoot over winter ,


Comment by A Bolton on 8th October 2012 at 19:45
Give us some sunshine Dave....I think I have had enough rain..


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 8th October 2012 at 22:42
Mick, wherefore art thou?
(Art`s comment at 01:15)


Comment by Mick on 8th October 2012 at 23:15
Amazing bit of photography Dave well done mate.
A photo like this could be used in a breast cancer advert especially if the umbrellas matched.


Comment by dave marsh on 8th October 2012 at 23:23
GREETINGS FROM THE US,OY,GREAT PIC.


Comment by Janet on 8th October 2012 at 23:50
I really miss shopping in a Town centre verses Walmart for groceries and Malls with the same stores as every other Mall in America..Wigan isn't the Wigan I grew up with and loved.. but you at least still have somewhat of a Town centre..


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th October 2012 at 02:43
Well Art, are you flabbergasted?
I agree with you Mick.


Comment by sanibelfred on 9th October 2012 at 16:28
After no rain from Jan to Aug I recently had the pleasure of drinking good coffee and looking at birds through the window of Starbucks. It was interesting that when I said a coffee shop near to Woolworths everyone knew what I meant.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 9th October 2012 at 21:01
sanibelfred lives on Sanibel Island in Florida and was visiting Wigan. The Starbucks he mentions is in Wigan Market Place and I was with him!


Comment by Lizzie down under. on 12th October 2012 at 20:49
Thought Auntie Nellies was rhyming slang for Wellies (Wellington Boots) could be wrong but it sounds right to me. Cheers!!!!


Comment by Philip Whitehead on 13th October 2012 at 14:07
Nice use of colourpop mate.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 14th October 2012 at 22:47
Auntie Nellie seems to be cockney rhyming slang for Belly, and Auntie Ella for Umbrella, see http://www.phespirit.info/cockney/slang_to_english.htm


Comment by luke on 28th October 2014 at 01:03
Mick, Are you on drugs? What planet are you on?


Comment by Tom on 25th July 2015 at 15:02
You have some imagination there , you Mick.
Had you just come back from the pub?
