So, even if you don't like the city/ town/ village/ hamlet you live in, there is always somewhere you love near where you live. For me, it's the beach:



Where do you love?

Dundee, my profile doesn't lie tongue.gif

You're right, though, its not really much of a city, its fairly small even for a Scottish city, but its very pretty and sunnier than the rest of Scotland by far. Interestingly, despite its size, it's responsible for about 10% of the UK's computer games industry (Realtime Worlds being the biggest part of that; Rockstar North was founded here as DMA Design as well, before moving to Edinburgh).

I do miss the bustle of Glasgow sometimes, but Dundee has just enough going for it to keep me happy living here.

Edit: Since it was such a nice day I decided to take a wander about town and get a few more photos for your viewing pleasure. Henjoy:


These three are my university campus; the main building is having a bit of a facelift at the moment. The round one is the library, the shiny one is the union.


Two of the city cathedral, which is attached to the tallest standing Medieval tower north of the border. I think the clock was a more recent addition, mind you.


Captain Cook's North Pole exploration vessel, the HMS Discovery, with the Tay road bridge in the background.


Caird Hall, Dundees biggest and swankiest concert venue.


McManus Galleries, only just reopened to the public after major refurbishment work (it's been shut since just after I moved here in 2004!)


The offices of D.C. Thompson, responsible for the Dandy and the Beano. Another place that's just had a shiny new front door installed.

and...

Me! Outside of the Realtime Worlds main office, and in need of a shave...

long post is looong...
