Dundee–the story, the wow and the funny

As I mentioned last week, my nephew Dylan turned 21 so the family all descended upon Dundee, where he is a student.  I only took one set of photos of the family dinner – Dylan is in the white shirt with his brother and father on each side; my parents are at the end with my sister (Dylan’s mum) and opposite are his lovely girlfriend and her family. I’m in the empty seat by the gorgeous handbag.


The next morning I went for a walk and my normal water magnet meant I headed for the harbour and captured some great photos



and the most amazing seascape


Then into town to meet Colin, an old Uni friend who I hadn’t seen for over 25 years who lives near Dundee. It felt as if we last chatted 25 days ago rather than 25 years ago. But no photos of that event – life does actually happen even when there is no photo !!

On the way I captured my up and down shots and the statues of comic characters Minni the Minx and Desperate Dan



and finally a strange sight that I had to capture and I’m sure has a story attached


And that was my Dundee experience.

Love, love, LOVE this series of photos - the bridges, the sculpture, the SHOE! - everything.

Oh, yes! I wonder what the shoe story is..

It's a wonderfully intriguing set of photos all round. Very enjoyable!

That seascape is so atmospheric...I have fond memories of a weekend in Dundee!

Rinda said what I was thinking! and now I would like to go to Dundee! Gorgeous frames again. I'm not at all adventurous with frames.

Wonderful photos telling so many interesting stories - that shoe one is brilliantly spotted and captured. What a lovely family that travels distance to celebrate the coming of age of one of them :).
