Interesting angle, Rachel. Good one.


Comment by alan on 16th November 2015 at 00:12
Disgusting


Comment by Den s on 16th November 2015 at 00:33
It certainly gets up my nose.


Comment by Derek Platt on 16th November 2015 at 00:56
What happened, did you faint after seeing the monstrocity for the first time. no matter what the angle it is awful. Nothing wrong with photo though.


Comment by David on 16th November 2015 at 01:14
Hahaha, funny title Rachel :-D


Comment by Garry on 16th November 2015 at 07:59
Not my cup of tea.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 16th November 2015 at 08:34
Sooner look at an HDR photo!


Comment by Anne on 16th November 2015 at 09:23
Not to be sniffed at.


Comment by Jonno on 16th November 2015 at 09:44
Nothing wrong with the photo as Derek says, i haven't seen this 'thing', although it doesn't appeal to me at first glance i can't really say very much, not knowing the size of it, how much it cost, who's idea it was, and also it's relationship with Wigan, if any.


Comment by Fred Mason on 16th November 2015 at 12:28
We'll need a very large hanky,

when it starts dripping...!!!!!!


Comment by lectriclegs on 16th November 2015 at 12:45
Garry, if it's not "Not my cup of tea" then just don't comment.


Comment by Alan on 16th November 2015 at 14:50
Not my cup of tea too.


Comment by Rachel on 16th November 2015 at 15:13
Something a little out of the ordinary, appreciate all your comments,

Thankyou


Comment by Jonno on 16th November 2015 at 15:16
lectriclegs, i cant agree with you on that, we cant have all positive comments on a photo, there's got to be a negative side as well, i would think that this photo of Rachels will get more negative ones than positive.I notice that you haven't commented at all about the photo.


Comment by Helen on 16th November 2015 at 16:06
Can someone let us who don't know anything about this, see the bigger picture. Come on Rachel, go and take another photo !


Comment by Pw on 16th November 2015 at 17:07
Jonno,I am one of the few people who like this piece of art.Rachel you do come up with some unusual shots.Keep these photos of Wigan coming


Comment by PeterP on 16th November 2015 at 18:14
jonno the sculpture is 5.5 metres tall and cost £80000 to make and was done has a piece of public art by modus development in 2007.Type "The Face" into search box for a full length photo


Comment by AulanH on 16th November 2015 at 18:30
Helen, see 9th November 2011. The Face of Wigan just off Millgate.


Comment by Garry on 16th November 2015 at 18:32
Well said Jonno. Rachal has taken some lovely photos in the past, but I'm afraid this one in my opinion is not. It's not the photo, it's the object.


Comment by Fred Mason on 16th November 2015 at 19:32
Chin up, Rachel..

I think you are great...and brave..

Keep 'em coming, Lass..


Comment by Neil Rigby on 16th November 2015 at 20:53
Helen, there is a wider shot, Photo-a-Day 25th July, 2014


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 16th November 2015 at 21:15
Helen; Photo-a-Day on 25th April 2010 shows where this ugly face is.


Comment by Jonno on 17th November 2015 at 01:04
Only just realised it was the face off Millgate, taken from an unusual angle.


Comment by Helen on 17th November 2015 at 13:59
Thanks Neil & Ernest....another bit of 'art' that is supposed to educate & inspire the masses...I like your 'nostrils' better Rachel, at least it made me laugh !
