Excellent shot Mr Oy !!


Comment by alan on 14th July 2017 at 02:17
Never heard of him.


Comment by Veronica on 14th July 2017 at 07:37
He plays a mean piano....brilliant picture.


Comment by Maureen on 14th July 2017 at 07:53
You only have to look at the photo to know who's taken it..brilliant Oy.


Comment by Howard P on 14th July 2017 at 08:19
I suspect good enough to be a newspaper photographer, some of their shots in newspapers especially in the sports pages taken at speed and from a great distance are superb. Look at the quality of Frank Orrell's photos from the 1960s and without today's camera technology, it just goes to show how good Frank is.


Comment by Alan on 14th July 2017 at 10:45
Not my cup of tea.


Comment by Mick on 14th July 2017 at 11:10
Looking how Jools knees stick out from his pants, I bet he could easily win a knobbly knee contest.


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 14th July 2017 at 13:06
Saw him live at Harewood House, Leeds, a while back. Absolutely brilliant.


Comment by Alex on 14th July 2017 at 13:15
My Black and White wedding photo appeared in the Wigan Observer in 1967, absolutely crystal clear, that was 50 years ago.


Comment by Veronica on 14th July 2017 at 13:44
My wedding photo appeared in the Observer in 1969 as Alex says crystal clear. The week after I went on the market and saw it being wrapped around some carrots!


Comment by Pat McC on 14th July 2017 at 15:51
Jools Holland - superb musician - outstanding talent and such a treat to listen to. Like you Veronica, my wedding photo appeared in the Wigan Observer in 1969 - the times when you stood stock still, else the photograph would be blurred.
Beautiful photo and interesting topic Dave, as usual!


Comment by irene roberts on 14th July 2017 at 16:14
That had me crying with laughter, Veronica! Brilliant! x.


Comment by Veronica on 14th July 2017 at 16:55
Irene it's true. I asked the woman could I have the paper because I had been on honeymoon and didn't know it was in the paper. I said "Hey - that's my picture!" She did give it to me so I could order the picture!
Talk about yesterday's news! It was a big picture as well- they don't seem to do that these days. Maybe it's because not many get married now.


Comment by Dave on 14th July 2017 at 16:59
Veronica / Irene. I thought would Veronica take this the wrong way but I couldn't stop laughing about the carrots . I have a very dry
sense of humour and this one did me in proper. Nice one Veronica


Comment by Veronica on 14th July 2017 at 17:09
It would be carrots wouldn't it - !! They didn't waste brown paper bags then Dave/ Irene!


Comment by Alan on 14th July 2017 at 17:12
Pat McC must of had the shakes at their wedding ha ha lol.


Comment by jim on 14th July 2017 at 17:18
pat m'c you should be still having your photo taken, why wouldn't you.


Comment by Maurice on 14th July 2017 at 18:46
An excellent shot,nice how he shows up against the black background.


Comment by irene roberts on 14th July 2017 at 19:14
Dave, I have never met Veronica but due to the banter we share, (including Maureen, who I DO know), I know she won't take things the wrong way. After having three pigs named after us in a recent photo-a-day, we have no choice but to have a sense of humour!


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 14th July 2017 at 21:21
Thanks all - he's a great entertainer!
