Further down Standishgate, the same day that I saw this `Statue` chap,was a most unusual sight in Wigan - a chap was sculpting a dog in sand. Wonder if anyone has taken a photo of this sculptor for Photo-a-Day?

Ah but I bet it was the same Romanian man inside the sheet.

My, how he has grown.

Is begging legal in Wigan town centre these days?


Comment by Trixie on 29th March 2012 at 09:49
That "statue" Man gets everywhere.

Great photo.


Comment by aitch on 29th March 2012 at 10:04
He was the one I saw in the centre of Liverpool a couple of years ago


Comment by Roy H on 29th March 2012 at 10:10
It's Artistic Licence. Not begging.

Ha Ha, the ghost of Wigan Past.

David did he blow the bubble that is above him or was someone else blowing them.

Comment by Clean Harry on 29th March 2012 at 12:57
Have you got a screw loose, Dirty Harry? Sorry , I'll rephrase that; you obviously have got a screw loose.
Perhaps you think you're funny? We'll...funny peculiar perhaps! Certainly NOT amusing by any stretch of the imagination.


Comment by dirty harry on 29th March 2012 at 17:00
well well well clean harry i must of hurt a nerve . try an get a sense of humour DO'H


Comment by dot on 29th March 2012 at 17:01
I saw the guy with the sand and he had made a dog. But this was in Southport yesterday. What I dont agree with is the guy in white gives lollipops to kids. Poor mums trying to get past, without a lolly. Bad for the teeth.


Comment by Clean Harry on 29th March 2012 at 18:20
I've got a great sense of humour for anything thats funny, dirty harry... So try and be funny, instead of making outlandish remarks. 'Joking' about breaking into a persons house and wanting bank account details isn't funny no matter how you meant it.

Comment by Fred Mason on 29th March 2012 at 21:56
Great stuff, Dirty Harry versus Clean Harry. My money is on Clean Harry...sorry dirty but clean is better... go for it Clean Harry..!!!!


Comment by Fred Mason on 29th March 2012 at 21:58
Forgot to say, nice pic, David.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 29th March 2012 at 22:35
Cyril, there`s a chap selling the `stuff` to make bubbles who is opposite the Grand Arcade and he blows these bubbles to attract attention:the breeze carries them wherever.


Comment by Cyril on 30th March 2012 at 11:52
Cheers Ernest, I'll have to get one of those bubble making machines to keep the cats entertained.


Comment by trish on 8th April 2012 at 19:56
