Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 12th February, 2020)
Soldier and the Cafe
It looks lovely at the going down of the sun, the soldier standing to attention, if we could but hear the sound of the Last Post...it's quite haunting to see.
Oh David thats a better photo of the cafe than the one I sent in last week, send it into Wigan council.
What a great photo, everything about it is right. Well done David !
Lovely colours, the natural and artificial colours harmonising.
That's so atmospheric. You can almost feel the cool air and imagine the soldier still keeping guard when the café lights have been turned off and all the park visitors have gone home.
Why are the lights on at night?
That is an excellent photo, David.
Especially the silhouette of the soldier, and as Veronica says, it's haunting. Well done.
One of the best photos seen on P.A.D, near perfect needs to be shown all around Wigan and beyond.
Halt! Who goes there on this magenta night?
Tis I. David. Maker of pictures!
I see no brush or easel. No box of tinctures.
I sculpt with sunrays soldier! Draw lines with light.
Daguerreotype is it? I saw one once on silver copperplate!
State your business within these gates!
Soldier, you'll be seen in many lands through my lens,
Perhaps even on the High Veldt once again.
Such is my purpose. That's my end.
Fair do comrade. Pass then friend.
Kath..see people can see!
Another fascinating photo.
I also think railway signal boxes lit up at night look so warming with the old coal fire roaring away.
(sadly not many left) They have a friendly and cosy presents.
lights are on but nobody in
Someone is standing next to the door.
Kath so people can see.
It's a beautiful shot David...and thank you.
What I mean is. what goes on there at night?
Kath only kidding, it could be closing time remember it's still dark at teatime.
This photo looks like it's just closing inn, dusk.
When darkness descends the soldier dreams of Pavilions in far off lands...just like the park cafe - ( not the stinky one that was at the bottom of Library St!)
Poet, that is magnificent. You complement the photo every time.
Thank you and thank you to you David - you're very talented people.
