It is amazing that an alley like that is litter free...no cans or bottles.

Mick has a strange imagination.
It's just a boring alleyway.

Joe it not a boring alleyway if your car is parked down there and its just started to rain

I don't mind the alley, it's something different. I suppose, being a caring individual, Mick cleaned it out before he took the shot.

This photo shows another Wigan scene which is what Photo of the Day is all about.

Blimey Mick! You must have had a bladder like the coalman's horse by the time you got here.

I love this photo. It shows a view of Wigan which most people would pass by and not notice

Well done, Julie..!!!

Mick has an interest in everyday life not just about himself. There are many housebound people who possibly look forward to scenes of Wigan and surrounding areas no matter how mundane. Well done Mick!

The last time I walked down this alley some of the doorways had been used as toilets and full of human excrement the smell was terrible.Never used it since but it now looks clean on Micks photo
