Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

For those of you popping in the for the weekly roundup... today's is part of the series began last Tuesday under title 'Menoffagainorrhea [me-noff-again-or-rhea]; the condition of the endless traveller'. This particular set are an immediate follow on from yesterday; Dundee is the focus.

As we left the docks redevelopment, driving over the river, I managed a couple of on-the-move shots. Having crossed the Tay, Mac1 and I stopped for a look back at the road bridge and the harbour. Usually, I save all shipping for Tuesdays over at TAKE blog, but these are not quite up to the grade as they were taken in poor weather, with full stretch of the zoom lens and no monopod for support. Fuzzy. Still fun though.

Chaffinches, clinging on by a feather in the high wind!

Next, we drove a couple of miles along the South bank to the famous rail bridge. If you biggify the first one you will see the curve...

...and if you biggify this one you can read about the history - it is quite clear.

That's the Edinburgh flyer!!!  To finish today, a different use for 'shipping'.

Tomorrow, we head back over the water...


  1. I like your clever copyright placement as much as your pictures.

  2. Mum used to cross that bridge, and road one, to Dundee. She luffed the shopping there, the bestest fabric and wool shops anywhere she says

  3. I'm fond of ship yards but not the ships or boats, but thats got a lot to do with seasickness.

  4. Our mom would be so scared to cross that bridge that she would pee her pants! She is chicken like that!
