Tigress Woods
 Tigress Woods   by John Morris  (Camera Nikon D700 with 24-85mm lens.)
Taken at the crazy golf course in Haigh Country Park. The little girl was having so much fun that we might be looking at a golfing star of the future!!!

She's adorable! Looks like you're having decent weather- this was Mothers Day on this side of the pond,
.....mother Nature wasn't very kind to us in Ontario. We've had wet snow, the Temperature is supposed to drop to zero tonight;....and the fan on our furnace has died, so no heat and I'm FFFFREEEEZING!!!!


Comment by Maggie K on 13th May 2013 at 06:03
FABULOUS - so nice to see that the crazy golf is being used. Well done the volunteers who have made it possible.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 13th May 2013 at 07:30
That is a smashing picture John......I am so glad to see that the Crazy Golf is fixed up for all to enjoy.....A big fan of this pastime I am....cheers!!!

Nice to see a child being a child for once!


Comment by Janice on 13th May 2013 at 10:07
Great Photo. Crazy golf open? Time for the Wigan World P-A-D CG challenge?


Comment by pat on 13th May 2013 at 10:57
Aw, bless her! This phot is a cracker, Thank you.


Comment by John & Edna Hulme on 13th May 2013 at 11:29
Great Picture John.
Edna loves it, worth all the work we are putting in on the crazy golf just to see that smile.


Comment by peterp on 13th May 2013 at 11:31
Ep why are you comparing a nice photo of a little girl enjoying herself with what PGA golfers earned yesterday?


Comment by Jane on 13th May 2013 at 14:58
Could be anywhere! Wigan photo's only please.


Comment by Catherine on 13th May 2013 at 15:31
Great photo. I think she needs a little work on her stance though!


Comment by tricia on 13th May 2013 at 16:20
Yes, Jane,
It could be anywhere, but it is in Haigh Country Park... which was in WIGAN when I went to school.
Don't be such a misery... Its a nice pic of a lovely little girl and everyone except you has enjoyed it.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 13th May 2013 at 16:23
peterp, when I saw this photo of the little girl, I thought of her growing up to be a professional golfer also, John calls her Tigress
Woods.


Comment by peterp on 13th May 2013 at 18:38
Ernest I see where you are coming from


Comment by Ellen M on 13th May 2013 at 20:24
What a little cracker!


Comment by Jane on 13th May 2013 at 20:25
Despite you saying its in Haigh Country park, tricia, one would never know by looking. Nice photo but it should be in the 'people' section.


Comment by Garry on 13th May 2013 at 20:47
Jane's a fruit and nutcase.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 13th May 2013 at 21:43
Thought the petty miserable comments only came from 2 male readers they have met their match!!


Charming picture ..wherever its from !


Comment by Lizzie down under on 13th May 2013 at 22:12
Janice you have to wait for me...will check my bus timetable....hee..hee...cheers!!!


Comment by John Morris on 13th May 2013 at 22:24
Thanks for all the comments folks and I am glad that it has given so much pleasure. Yes Janice we must organise the P-a-D tournament I am certainly up for it and as a "Friend" can organise the course. As for your comment Jane, a clue to the location was in the second line of the caption. The re-vamped crazy golf is a source of both interest and pleasure and therefore I would suggest is a fitting subject for the Photo-a-Day slot, and this way of showing it (giving pleasure) was my interpretation of this.


Comment by Gerald Pilkington Canada on 13th May 2013 at 23:59
Ellen, what did you do when you lived in wigan. Love to see kids having fun.


Comment by Art on 14th May 2013 at 01:10
Jane, you could be photographed in a Wigan picture...
Simply this "kit off, where t'bobby stands"....Is that near enough to qualify for a real "Wigan" pic?..;o)


Comment by Gary on 14th May 2013 at 13:14
Jean F (wales)2 male readers?
I doubt that Jane is male!


Comment by Ellen on 14th May 2013 at 18:38
Gerald, the simple answer would be I grew up in Holland Moor and left to go to Leeds for Nursing training, then working there until eight months before I emigrated. During that eight months, not wanting,or able to find a temporary job in nursing,I worked at a stocking factory in Skelmersdale new town!


Comment by Gerald Piilkington Canada on 15th May 2013 at 00:15
where are you now ellen


Comment by Ellen on 15th May 2013 at 09:44
Gerald, for the past 25years I've lived in Walkerton,Ontario. Before that lived in Scarboorough, where I worked at Scarborough General Hospital (now The Scarborough Hospital)
