Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 10th May, 2020)
The New Look Orwell
Wigan Pier looks bigger than I remember it. Many years ago I did a canal cruise from there. Thank you for stimulating my memory Mick. I always enjoy your postings. Alan.
It's becoming more and more noticeable that only four or five Photographers are contributing most of the photos on P-A-D which is surprising considering that P-A-D has well over a thousand views per day and most people now carry a camera about with them all the time.
I have no complaints about the quality of the photos on P-A-D. But, has the old saying goes "Variety is the spice of life".
There must be some way of encouraging more people to contribute.
That's probably because a lot of us don't live in Wigan any more! Sadly
Teasy Weasy don't you know there is a pandemic going on.
If you notice the building as been sand blasted and been pointed in a dark mortar mix, which makes it all look better.
Ron' s left a big gap too...Bless him..
Mick, if you look back at the month of March you will see that of the 31 days 0f P-A-D, 22 were contributed by only 4 people.
It's a good thing that you and others go to the trouble of taking and submitting photos as you do, but it would surely, also be a good thing to encourage more people to take part.
That's the only point I was trying to make.
As Brendell says, some of us no longer live in Wigan and so obviously can't contribute but Wigan has a special place in our hearts.
A nice informative photo Mick. Is the Orwell still a pub/restaurant?
how do you up load pics on here
Pat McC its all being refurbished at present
baz, how do you? That is the question.Lots of people have old photos, but don't know how to upload them
Hi baz and E Mc,
To upload photos for photo-a-day, please email them to me - firstname.lastname@example.org and include title, brief description and make/model of camera. Unfortunately I can't add them all as I get more photos than there are days in a year. Therefore I can't guarantee your photo will be added.
As for old photos. Please visit the album and click the link to add photos. These are added within several hours. If a photo doesn't get added its because it was poor quality, upside down or too small etc.
I am laid up with a bad foot at the moment but we no longer have a camera and my phone only does calls and texts.
Thank you Brian for the information much appreciated.
