The head in the top right as a look of you.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 31st October 2012 at 00:42
For myself, Dave, monochrome doesn`t do anything for this
scene and would be far better in colour.


Comment by Ellen on 31st October 2012 at 00:52
I love this picture!---Suitably spooky,the monochrome effect couldn't be better.


Comment by Art on 31st October 2012 at 01:32
Lovely shot Dave. Very much like a pic I took a lorra years ago, (when Russell Lyons barbers pole was stuck on the wall)..;o)


Comment by alan on 31st October 2012 at 01:51
The head up on the right looks like one of my old teachers......good place for him !


Comment by Lizzie down under on 31st October 2012 at 01:58
Oooooooooo!!!!!!! Scared me right out of my socks Dave. What a gruesome pic but all the better in black and white. Wouldn't like to hanging around in that lane way at night!!! Cheers all, happy Halloween!!!!


Comment by Ken R on 31st October 2012 at 02:16
Hung,drawn and quartered. Theres only one Wiend.


Comment by Helen on 31st October 2012 at 07:45
What a good photo, the black & white really makes it look spooky !


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh on 31st October 2012 at 08:03
Thank you Dave,it's a great shot for today.This little bit of Wigan has a charm of its own,we ought to be thankful that this lower part of the thoroughfare was left intact.


Comment by Ron D on 31st October 2012 at 08:30
The two figures put the finishing touches to a good picture.


Comment by Al.C. on 31st October 2012 at 09:53
Looks like Wigan on any Friday/Saturday night!


Comment by David on 31st October 2012 at 10:57
Which shop was Harry Smith?


Comment by Dave Marsh on 31st October 2012 at 11:17
I reckon yon heads will bring more people up the Wiend than Tom Whalleys macaw ever did,Oy.I have said it before and I'll say again,'there's a spooky tunnel under there,I've seen it'.


Comment by dirty harry on 31st October 2012 at 12:16
thats an old new meaning to having your head in the clouds.


Comment by Mags on 31st October 2012 at 12:53

Comment by Bill on 31st October 2012 at 14:42
Colour, please, ta...


Comment by Daveb on 31st October 2012 at 15:23
Excellent Dave the B+W sets the scene eerie,like the title to Halloweind well done.


Comment by A Bolton on 31st October 2012 at 15:23
Halloween masked ok....but my grandaughter was distressed to see the hanging heads.....Good shot Dave but lets have a bit more thought for the little ones!


Comment by Mick on 31st October 2012 at 16:37
A Bolton shouldnt it be YOO who is making sure your grandaughter dosent see stuff that upsets her.

If I had grandkids I wouldnt mind them seeing this photo because they would have been brought up to recognize that its just a harmless photo


Comment by a bolton on 31st October 2012 at 20:38
Hi Mick...She didnt see the photo! She ran up the Wiend and came pelting down when she saw the Heads.I was surprised to see the heads on "Photo-a day"........


Comment by Phil Whitehead on 1st November 2012 at 17:54
I like this Dave, the mono works for me.


Comment by jon lythgoe on 2nd November 2012 at 00:59
I'll never go up there again


Comment by Bill on 3rd November 2012 at 09:46
For those who like monochrome photo's... how about changing you colour TVs for black & white.? Save a few bob on the TV licence!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 5th November 2012 at 17:19
I like your comments, Bill.
Cost doesn`t affect me as have had a free TV license for nearly 10 years !


Comment by Fred on 6th November 2012 at 08:44
Now come on...let's not lose our heads over this!


Comment by C Rad on 17th October 2013 at 01:59
Correct me guys. If I were to walk down this pathway and look right at the bottom - would I be looking at the old location of Woolworths? Or have I got this wrong.
