Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 1st March, 2011)
Photo: Matthew Cooper (Olympuse E400 using a 14-42mm Kit Lens)
Dramatic! Is that Jack-the-Ripper hiding around the corner ?
Horrible, come on, get out in the parks and country-side, where flowers and birds have come to life.
Good quality Matthew, but a sight for sore eyes.
We have had enough of birds!!!! Scenic views pleas!
They don't build em like this any more.
I think this is a great shot of the outside plumbing.Ex Plumber.Not keen on the hanging cables .
Great picture Matthew, something different for a change.
What are we looking at???????
Where is it.
i like it, dont know why lol but i do... it does remind me of how alan described it....
I bet it stinks of wee up there.lol
john, seeing as i work full time i don't have much time to get out and about other than around town.
Cindy, it's the back of the big building on Wallgate. down the alleyway next to cash converters
Come off it Matthew, Mesnes Park's not a stone's throw away from there.
Looks like the back door to the public bar.........do people really walk down there .....at night ?
Whoever said "Modern Wigan has no peer"?????
Still, to be fair, photographically, the shot does have merit.
I agree with Billy, enough of the birds.
Reminds me of working at the UCP in market St back in the 70's
I'm no photographer but I like this
dark, sinister pic, very artistic....I have just looked at Wednesday's pic, the narrow boat & hawthorn berries, this in total contast..it's good.
You certainly created a lot of interest with this one Matthew. Great to see something different. Fed up with things relating to trains and train lines.
A great picture, variety is the spice of life.
Good one. The parts of Wigan we never get to see are the best shots. We have had enough of birds, fields, and rubbish...
John, Mesnes park is fair grotty at times and i wanted to show a part of wigan few see (as some picked up on). Also i think you mean "eye sore" as a sight for sore eyes would contradict your point
The more I look at this photo the more I like it. It would be interesting to see the same photo in colour to see the comparison.
I've really enjoyed the birds and trees, not to mention the flowers,narrow boats and all,however,this has a really gritty,almost "Filme Noir" feel to it---fascinating,and a great picture.
Nice shot like it.
Looks like an album cover for an indie band. Great photo :)
