"On a cold and frosty morning"....A little macabre, but a very effective picture.


Comment by Ken R on 8th December 2013 at 00:37
Spooky. I thought that these scenes where in the Dracula movie.


Comment by alan on 8th December 2013 at 02:52
What a mess ! I thought cemeteries were supposed to honour the memories of the dead. This one is an insult.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 8th December 2013 at 04:35
Kath this definitely has got a spooky feel to it....but a beautiful picture...cheers!!!

First impression - Great expectations, expected to see Pip, and the escaped prisoner! - Good photo.


Comment by Mick on 8th December 2013 at 08:33
I bet them two trees could tell a few story's if they could talk.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 8th December 2013 at 15:01
Very neglected! What on earth is in the bucket? What a mess.
A real spooky picture,dom`t think I would like to have been there!


Comment by Mick on 8th December 2013 at 15:29
Jean the bucket is where the window cleaner is buried.


Comment by Janet ( FL ) on 8th December 2013 at 16:12
I LOVE this pic Kathleen, it is 'different'...I like different... As for the 'neglect', that's what happens with Budget cuts... I don't know who covers these Cemeteries Wigan or Greater Manchester.. but they are the ones who let this happen.. Another reason to be cremated and ashes scattered......


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 8th December 2013 at 16:49
Thought it might be Mick.


Comment by Janice on 8th December 2013 at 16:57
Yes, a sppoky shot Kathleen. Well seen. Perhaps the cemetery is meant to be like that - could be a woodland cemetery but I don't know Wigan that well. To be honest, I would rather see it neglected like this than have all those vases full of artificial flowers and other paraphernalia that you see. I always think that that gives the air of cant be bothered to visit to place fresh flowers. However, each to there own.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 8th December 2013 at 19:02
Jean there are flowers in the bucket....stretched the pic on my iPad and they are flowers....cheers!!!


Comment by Cliff on 8th December 2013 at 19:11
Jean F. That thing hanging out of the window cleaners bucket is his Chamois Leather!


Comment by Garry on 8th December 2013 at 19:34
Genuine, great shot Kathleen...


Comment by Paula on 8th December 2013 at 22:36
What I can see is a very unusual ( and interesting) shot including a square urn-type memorial which has been filled with flowers, may be real or artificial - who knows.?

It is definitely not a chamois leather hanging out !!

And obviously there is somebody who cares to visit occasionally


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 9th December 2013 at 21:23
Hope nobody believed me when I answered Mick !!

Certainly couldn`t see what was in the bucket though,!
Fair play to someone if they were flowers.Cheers Lizzie x


Comment by Lizzie down under on 10th December 2013 at 02:33
Cheers...Jean...:)
