Nice moody mono Dave, good stuff as usual.

What an amazing picture Dave, very strong and very good in black and white. It wouldn't have the same wow if it had been in colour. Very good bordering on excellence. Cheers!!

I`m not a lover of B and W photo`s now, Dave. Would be interesting to compare this to that with colour.
It was comical watching snooker on TV before colour arrived !!
Trencherfield Mill was built in 1907. Refer :-

Ernest those those snooker comments are very true.

Coronation street as never been the same since that went colour.

beltin shot again Dave, I like these photos that show parts of Wigan without all the road and other signs which seem to blot our landscape

Colour please! This is the 21st century...

Ta folks - glad you like it.

Ron - I deliberately lightened the hand rail to lead the eye to the people under the bridge :-)
