Well framed Brian, I like the way you got the tip of the turret in the little gap at the top of the gateway. Was that deliberate?


Comment by Mick on 30th January 2020 at 06:36
Youv got the point of the tower right into the gap of the stonework

Excellent photo,well framed.

Good photo from an unusual view


Comment by irene roberts on 30th January 2020 at 08:55
That's lovely! I love the "frame" and the damp Wigan flagstones, some of them cracked. They remind me of childhood superstitions when we little girls considered it bad luck to step on a cracked flag..."Step on a nick and you'll marry a stick and a beetle will come to your wedding"! Lovely photo.

I feel 'the turret just shy of the keystone', would have made quite a difference: The entire red-bricked building would have been pushed further into the distance thus increasing perspective. A good idea for Mr Brian to have considered the archway, though.

Been some nice looking buildings in Wigan, pity they keep knocking them down ,all the workmanship that went into them ,like the turret in the photo ,such a shame, this might be added to the list in a few years unless its listed, very good photo Brian .

I wonder who decided to paint those lovely oak doors that horrible shade of custard!


Comment by Geoff on 30th January 2020 at 14:29
That's an excellent photo in every respect Brian. Very well done!!

Lovely row of chimneys . Any of yours Garry ?
Funny how some pictures bring back memories . I remember our coal man bringing us coal when I was young , we couldn’t afford it all the time . I remember it was absolutely belting down with rain , cold and freezing as well . I remember his hands and his jacket and the rain soaked sacks as he delivered them to a cupboard we had . Even young , I thought blimey what a life , as the rain lashed his face as he walked away . All to keep us warm .
How much owe and how much others had to do for a crust on the table .

What an amazing memory, XPat, to remember in such detail. The coalman will probably be gone now but how amazed he would be to know that a child had remembered his hands and his face in the rain, and been grateful for the service he gave.

Thanks for the comments. I didn't intentionally aim to get the tip of the turret in the gap of the arch, it was luck I guess. I'm a simple click'n shoot chap, let the camera do the work, in this case my phone.
