Giant Kangaroos invade Wigan - Sat 20th July 2013

Comment by Derek Platt on 25th July 2013 at 02:14
Well I hope they are being paid well for doing this. Personally I wouldn't do it no matter how much I was paid. They just look idiotic.


Comment by A Parr (Aussie) on 25th July 2013 at 04:11
Perhaps these roos have brought you the hot weather.Can you send them back because it is cold here in Adelaide.(17 degs)


Comment by Ron D on 25th July 2013 at 08:23
They do not cast a shadow ,and appear to float .


Comment by Lizzie down under on 25th July 2013 at 08:47
I love them.....they are so big....great photo Oy.....cheers!!!


Comment by Margaret Wall on 25th July 2013 at 09:42
That's exactly what I thought Ron. It looks as though they've been placed onto the photo artificially.


Comment by Mick on 25th July 2013 at 10:15
Ron there shadows will be Downunder.

If that was you yesterday coming up Wigan road and heading towards Aspull, it was me who was coming down waving, but I couldnt see you very well because I had a fly in one of my eyes.

The Aussie opening batsmen limbering up for Old Trafford?


Comment by Ron D on 25th July 2013 at 11:11
Your Right Mick on both counts


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 25th July 2013 at 11:37
Ron - they cast no shadow because they are still within the shadow of the buildings at the right. They haven't crossed that line into the sunlight. The reason they seem to float - is that they are jumping on large springs within the stilts inside their suits. They're hopping down be road and are both about a foot off the ground.

Isaw these on Market street the other day, I thought they were great fun. Were they promoting something or was it a charity thing?


Comment by Ron D on 25th July 2013 at 16:28
Tripped your shutter at the right moment. You timed it right,Had they been on the ground there would have been a shadow ,nicely timed Dave.


Comment by Garry on 25th July 2013 at 19:00
A much better shot would have been at the front, and not from behind.


Comment by dave johnson on 25th July 2013 at 19:18
Ron, they were out of the Sun so like Dracula they will not cast a shaddow. I saw these two lads on Saturday and my first thought was "how hot are they" I was bloody lothered just walking up Standishgate!
Oy,Nice shot by the way.
