Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 30th January, 2013)
Wigan Town Centre
Photo: David Thomas (LEICA V-LUX 40)
This is a good photo it would make a nice painting.
Love it... Thank you David!!
Nice, David......so clear and crisp...thanks for braving the cold....cheers!!
Beautiful picture. Not many folks about at 10.35 on a Saturday Morning.
Just like a Christmas Card David. Very nice image. One for the album Lizzie?
Thanks so much Mick for the trip from Shevington to Standish in the snow.....lovely...amazingly once you hit Almond Brook Road I knew where I was, up to School Lane and down into Standish....magic.....cheers!!
How nice it looks......until it gets grey and slushy and invades your boots!
It just occurred to me, I don't remember so many timbered buildings. was I simply not very observant when I lived there, or have they been "doctored" or added to?
this is WIGAN - much better than any 'wildlife' pic!
Great Winter photo. The church, as always, looks magnificent.
I like this one .First class.
Only in your opinion Scholes Mal, a variation of everything is much better in my opinion!
Nice photo David.
No Ellen, they,ve always been there and there are plenty more of them, further down Standishgate and in other parts of Wigan, they are Mock Tudor Ellen. Henry,as has been said many times before the church would have looked a lot better without Barclays etc in front of it. Nice shot David.
Is it just on my laptop that this photo is stretched vertically and squashed horizontally?
The lady with the red scarf looks like one of L S Lowry`s matchstalk figures.
There are several photo`s in various sections of wiganworld to compare with this photo.
Photo #19983 in Album, Places, Street Scenes, 2nd row, 3rd along, taken about 1958, shows what the traffic was like.
There`s quite a contrast in dress between the ladies on the left of both photo`s!
stunning, a real eye catcher, makes one proud to be a Wiganer
Ernest Pyke's always whingeing at something or other, must be that age.
Garry, I`m not whinging, just stating facts. What`s the photo like at your end?
Correction to my comment at12:53:-
Photo #19983 is in Album, Street Scenes,Market Place, 2nd row, 3rd along.
Lovely photo - interesting enought to make a jig-saw. Really good.
I agree Pat it would make a wonderful jigsaw
As to how many pieces and the difficulty.....
Great Christmas setting,the town centre never looked so good.But it do;s look a bit squashed up.A good pic; one of the best this year.
nice one dave
Lovely picture Dave.Happy memories.
A Parr Adelaide, this photo was taken on 26th Jan.`13, well after Christmas!
Photo for me is spoiled by not being
natural. Did you compare it with photo #19983? (my comment 17:46)
Ernest what ever you think of the photograph is ok, but it is as it came out of the camera no alterations.Thanks to everyone for your comments glad it gave those people living abroad happy memories.
Dave, I`m very surprised, did you have a look at photo #19983?
Ernest......it looks Christmassy....because of the snow.....cheers!!!
Dave, I`m on a computer in Wigan library and this photo is just the same as on my laptop. Are you sure you had a normal setting?
The lady's nice and slim for god sake, Ernest. Now give it a rest. The photos great.
The clock on the parish church is round.....What shape would you like it to be to comply with your view of things....Like Garry says...Give it a rest, nothing wrong with a very good photo..
A nice photo of Wigan that will be appreciated by the expats who like to remember their roots.
The clock is somewhat elliptical on my screen.
And the two squares at either side are oblongs..???
When in a hole...Stop diggin' ernie
I`ve asked Dave if he used a zoom lens (P-a-D 2nd Feb.`13 at 23:11), but no reply.
The pic was taken from "Munros" corner,(bottom of Millgate) & that angle to where the "Old Dog" pub once jutted out foreshortens the perspective & makes the Marketplace look narrower than it really is.
EVERYTHING is in proportion. ie: no trickery.
One way to prove it, take your cam & stand in the same spot, then press the button....Then report back
david the picture to me is brilliant and captivating and i just realised why ,its the sunshine contrasting with the shade in the foreground ,you got it just right
I took a photo yesterday from same spot and it is different to David`s.
I can make it the same as David`s by zooming in on Windows Photo Gallery.
