The Moving Image

Absolutely love this software, amazing how different a simple photograph looks when one part of the picture is moving.
These are old ones above is Broughty Ferry looking towards Dundee. The usual rules apply when viewing these, if you’re on a PC then right click on the video and select loop for the best viewing.

Above a train pulls away from Dundee station and below the oldest British built warship still afloat gets a wee tug along the river Tay.

Colouring In

Dundee Dad's Army

I’ve been spending the past few hours colouring this old black and white of Dundee’s Home Guard giving a couple of Germans an escort along Bell Street in the centre of Dundee. A photo that has always fascinated me purely because of the Luftwaffe officer towering above the last line of defence.
This is a work in progress a few things to do and a few things to go back and change.

Back to the Future with Groucho


Not done one of these for ages so here’s a wee treat seeing as I’m now officially two years on WordPress, it was Groucho’s birthday last week(Groucho the man that is) and Dundee’s very own Groucho’s is getting a wee documentary made about it which you can read more on here LINK
The black and white part of the photo is all gone in favour of roads and modernization. Groucho’s is a CD, DVD and vinyl gold mine of treasures also ticket seller for all the major gigs in Scotland and probably further afield too.
The Nether Inn does some decent pub grub at a good price too, if you’re ever in Dundee you know where to go for that rare LP and some food.

The Howff Dandies


Added a wee bit of colour to the old black and white image.
This from Dundee’s ancient Howff Cemetery which is needing a bit of TLC so a wee group have gotten together to do something about it.
