Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 25th March, 2012)
Nice shot, i was there last Sunday and got some reasonable shots of these fellas but yours is great.
Brian, are you deliberately antagonising us Wiganers who maintain that `wildlife` photo`s, which could be taken anywhere, are not revelant to Wigan World?
This is the fourth `wildlife` photo shown in the last eight days - 50%.
He looks like he's smiling for the camera!
Great photo Ron. C'mon Ernest where are your photos? (Love the sarky comments tho')
I would like to thank Brian for all the wonderful photos that are shown here. if you as old as I am you would remember the dirt and destruction that was around in the area when I was a child. keep going Brian.
Brilliant, Ron! Keep up the good work.
oh for gods sake another stupid pic of a frog get a grip wigan world im getting sick of this now .
you dont need to look at the photos if you dont want to do or click onto month calandar and leave comments aboutphotos you like
Gud un Ron, looks like hes going to have plenty company with all the frog spawn in there.
Ernest Pyke Switch off and get on with it, I bet you was a belly laugh at work, your a bore. It's Spring for hevens sake...pity you can't hibernate.
Lovely shot Ron, keep em coming.
Dirty Harry, go and get a wash and take that ernest bloke with you. you both need a clean up and stop Whinging, take peterp's advice.
last night I watched a rerun of the movie " Brother where art thou." This frog reminds me of someone I used to know. Is it possible?
Brian, how about replying to my comment?
If Ron says it is a Wigam frog then that is good enough for me. I love it and I love the frogs smile, it made me smile.
Ernest, to put it another way its the fifth wildlife photo in 38 days. Not excessive.
Ernest, question for you, do you live locally?
Brian, thanks for reply. I was born in Diggle St.Wigan in 1928. I`ve lived in Shevington since 1958. Is it not possible to have a separate section for these `wildlife` photo`s? I think we are being deprived from photo`s connected & identifiable with Wigan.
Ernest, I spend too much time already updating ww so to create another new section would take too much of my time.
The photo-a-day section offers varied photos from nature, wildlife, buildings, scenery.
It's unfortunate that I can't please everyone all of the time. People complain about buildings, people complain about people photos, people complain about wildlife. I'm trying to provide a mix and am grateful to the contributors that have taken some excellent photos locally over the years.
Ernest, from your post, you would be around 84 years of age? Do you get out and about? If so, please send a photo for photo-a-day, if you don't have a camera you can use mine.
Brian, I get out and about quite a lot using my pass. Played golf at Chorley 3 times last week. I`m no good with a camera.
Ernest, there's nowt to it really, point'n'click, offer is still there - my camera is available.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to keep the photo-a-day comments on track. Nice chatting.
For Ron-this is a great picture;I agree with Irene,he does appear to be smiling! Thankyou.
For Brian- I think you do a wonderful job on WiganWorld, it must take up a lot of your day. Know that it is much appreciated by at least one person(me!!),and I'm sure many others.
It's been an interesting day on photo-a-day, keep the comments coming.
Thanks Ellen for your kind words.
Ernest, Your being given every opportunity to improve your idea of photo a day.I'm sure brian will show you how to activate the camera,
then take a photo.If your not willing to do this then I suggest you shut the hell up!
maggie, how old are you?
sanibel fred, I am 76, that old enough? That is the real Maggie, not the one using my name.
Maggie, I know Sanibel Fred`s age & you are a spring chicken compared to him !
Brian you cannot please all the people all of the time, and the ones who complain about any picture you publish should get out and about with a camera and let us see what they can do.
Keep up the good work Brian and ignore the sad persons comments.
You do an incredible job.Many thanks.
Excellent Brian. I have never contributed a photo to Photo of the Day as I don't live in Wigan anymore. I am grateful for all that do for bringing back some memories. Thanks one and all. Thanks to you Brian.
