Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 19th October, 2021)
From Haigh to Manchester
Photo: Dennis Seddon (Nikon D7500)
The cow on the right looks like its got a white shaped map of India and Sri Lanka on its chuck section, you can also see Madagascar on the upper leg or Brisket.
I love looking at cows and trying to make something out of their black and white shapes.
The ski slope looks as if it's within walking distance and the Trafford Centre reminds me of St Peter's in Rome. What a clear photo that is...
Brilliant photo Dennis.I am in Manchester at the moment, looking after a puppy Labrador, which belongs to my son,& family.She is 6 months old.
Mick, the cow’s name is Germantrude and she isn’t suspected of any crime. The bird in the grass, however, refused to identify herself and legged it or should I say winged it.
There is now a warrant out for her arrest. She is armed with splatter bombs and should not be approached by the general public.
Amazing photo. A friend once pointed out a house in Toddington Lane with the name "Sea View", which I thought was perhaps a joke, but maybe you CAN see the sea with a camera like Dennis's and the right conditions! Yoo-hoo, Edna, give us a wave.....we can see you from here!
Brilliant photo Dennis,it does look as though you can walk to the landmarks !
Metro linguistics can be so ugly . Precinct . Mall . Zone . Shopping complex is horrible . They would probably call St. Peter's The papal devotion sector .
Thanks Dennis, we all like a bit of light hearted banter on dull days.Its pouring down here!!
Gertrude might be chewing the cud, but that cow looks like a cardboard cut out to me! ;~)
Irene, just down the road from "Sea View" you can see Blackpool Tower.
Mick:The cow is also showing a dangling protrusion that may be a teat, the udder ones are out of sight.
I can see that it looks like a chap on a bike, wearing a crash helmet holding a camera, you’re correct “Mick” it’s surprising what you can see if you use your imagination.
It's pouring down here has well Edna, I don't know why they bother with the weather forecast in this country, when it gets to October they could just put a sign up saying "Rain until further notice" and in April they could put another sign up saying "Less rain until further notice".
I know Irene, it's surprising how far you can see, just by standing on a high hill in Wigan!! xx
I think the church on the left, with the distinctive turret on the tower, is St Bartholomew's, Westhoughton.
I think you need help, Mick.
Any body see the tick on Germantrudes bum, just asking? Interesting 'photo!
it'll be the fumes from the M6 that makes Shevingtonians hallucinate, along with those purple mushrooms they pick from the old Roburite site, go up there and watch them driving whilst off their heads, it's like watching the programme Car Crash TV
Great comments Olive !????
I cried when that church was damaged by arsonists, I used to go the Parochial school just across the road and have fond memories of the Harvest Festival in there.
I remember when the Church was on fire peebee. There's only that part left of it that's original. Very sad. The school is still in use though. I went inside the church for Mr Hindley's funeral. He had been the Headmaster there at the Parochial. I used to live next door to him.
'Owd Jack' I remember him still with trepidation.
I know his notoriety spread far and wide. Although he used to go shopping down Market St on a Saturday morning and it took him hours to get back home with all his old pupils some in their 70's, stopping him. He was well in his 90's when he died. He remembered them all though! But they remembered him better! He knew he was called Owd Jack!
