Window at St Marys, Ince
 Window at St Marys, Ince   by Andrew Fishburn  (Canon EOS 6D)
By Gerald Rickards. Installed on the South side of church. In the centre is depicted the current building - what used to be the school. The 'old' church is at the top with the cooling towers that were clearly visible from various parts of Ince. Nods are also given to Britannia Bridge, the two schools in the Parish, the Cenotaph, and former industries.

WOW Andrew that in brilliant

Superimposed photo!


Comment by joe graney on 19th May 2014 at 06:31
very clever andrew


Comment by kath on 19th May 2014 at 06:45
love it!A great photo and a piece of history too !


Comment by Rev David Long on 19th May 2014 at 07:44
The first time I was taking an early service when the morning sun was shining through the window was a great surprise - two for the price of one! At certain times the image cast on the wall is so clear that it is almost as good as the image in the window itself.
Well taken, Andrew.


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 19th May 2014 at 08:13
Thanks folks :-)
Garry, no superimposing here. The shot is exposed for the window, rather than its colourful shadow. Consequently, the colours in the shadow are much deeper and intense as they are underexposed. I had been invited to photograph the Easter flowers but was amazed at how the sun poured through the window giving this effect, I shifted a few chairs and metered for the window.


Comment by Gareth on 19th May 2014 at 09:07
Nice shot - Well Done !


Comment by Jod on 19th May 2014 at 09:33
Brilliant image, Andrew!
Don't worry, Garry won't have a clue what you're explaining anyway! Another ignorant comment from the P-a-D troll!


Comment by John Morris on 19th May 2014 at 09:36
An excellent shot Andrew, well observed and well executed.


Comment by Carol on 19th May 2014 at 09:53
Beautiful!


Comment by tricia on 19th May 2014 at 10:14
That's a bit harsh , Jod.


Comment by A.W. on 19th May 2014 at 10:22
A fantastic image, one of the best this month.


Comment by Jenny on 19th May 2014 at 11:46
Great shot, thank you Andrew.


Comment by Garry on 19th May 2014 at 11:53
I was only commenting how I see it!


Comment by Mick on 19th May 2014 at 12:06
Jod I have to disagree I think the best one this month so far as been the one of the Upper Morris Street Working Mens Club taken by Thomas Walsh on Saturday, 3rd May.

It show Wigan as it is today and its not a showy off photo because Photo a Day is not about that.

I will go and say a few prayers now just in case.


Comment by irene roberts on 19th May 2014 at 12:37
Is this one of the windows in memory of Mrs. Round?


Comment by Garry on 19th May 2014 at 12:44
Jod's a fool. What does he know.


Comment by Jod on 19th May 2014 at 13:37
Garry, please explain your oft-used term 'superimposed'.
I asked a while ago when you would give the benefit of your experiences with a camera, but just got another flippant answer.
If you've nothing constructive to say, why do you troll the P-a-D pages?
I've sent photos for display on here on many occasions, and know plenty about photography, so I appreciate a well made image.
Tricia, look back and see if you can find Garry being positive, constructive or informative.


Comment by Andrew F on 19th May 2014 at 13:39
Mick, it's a unique window designed by a Wigan artist, of familiar Wigan scenes in a building in Wigan that the Wigan public can see for themselves. As a large percentage of Wiganers have not seen it I shared it to show Wigan as it is today, not to show off! It's the morning sun that's doing the showing off!


Comment by Mick on 19th May 2014 at 16:52
You might not be trying to show off Andrew but from some of the comments being made they think it is.

Im just saying its not the best of this month


Comment by Garry on 19th May 2014 at 17:12
Nothing at all wrong with superimposed, many amateur and professional photographers use it, especially in newspapers.
Why drag Tricia into it?


Comment by Helen B on 19th May 2014 at 18:02
Gerald Rickards was my old art teacher and form master at Upholland Grammar School in 1960. A talented artist, and a good teacher. He passed away about 2006 I think.


Comment by Andrew on 19th May 2014 at 19:04
Sorry Mick but you can't say that based on the comments on here. I'm happy if it's the worst photo of the month by a country mile - clearly it's worth sharing and done so with humility.
Helen, I was privileged to meet Gerald on several occasions - a true gentleman who made a unique and lasting contribution to Wigan.


Comment by Beryl on 19th May 2014 at 19:42
I love stained glass windows


Comment by Rev David Long on 19th May 2014 at 20:13
Irene, this window was dedicated in 2002 in memory of Fred and Jinney Chaffer Oxley, who lived at 15 Westwood Terrace, and were the parents of Eileen and Harold. Eileen and her late husband John Marsden also paid for the replacement of the window frames in the rest of the church, and for the reframing of the two surviving 1923 windows from the original St Mary's church.
By a strange coincidence, I am returning to St Mary's on Wednesday to take the Funeral of Margaret (Ashurst) Johnson, who was married from 15 Westwood Terrace in 1960. Many will remember her as a teacher at St. Mary's, Ince Central, and Britannia Bridge Schools.
The four windows depicting the life of Mary were commissioned in honour of Ethel Round's centenary - not in her memory. Sadly, she died before I dedicated them.


Comment by Mick on 19th May 2014 at 21:31
Andrew I can say anything I when I see the same old comments coming from the same old nice photo mate brigade.

Some of them dont even take a proper look at the photo


Comment by Rev David Long on 20th May 2014 at 08:34
Oh, I forgot to mention - Gerald Rickards put some personal references in the design of the window - so the front door of 15 Westwood Terrace features - as does our dog, sitting in front of the Vicarage, and Gerald's own trademark of a cat.


Comment by irene roberts on 20th May 2014 at 10:37
Rev Long, Miss Ashurst was my "babies class" teacher and I am attending her funeral. We got back in touch a few years ago after she read an article of mine in Past Forward about Ince Central School. We had a lovely penfriendship for those few years and I am so glad of that.
