Treeangles and Tay

Looking from a different angle can often make things clearer



On a closed in grey day, but rather nice in a calm quiet way. Oh, and here's The Tay




Thursdays are 'netbook days' for me at present, when I do solo working in coffee shops and pubs while wandering from one to the other to get exercise and views.

I overheard a familiar friendly waitress instructing a new lass where to take my latte to with, 'The big guy in the corner, where he always sits.' It's nice to be known in the locality (unless the police are looking for you).

The Tay somehow looks right with a grey, leaden back drop. I like the bridge - which one is it? Interesting perspective on the trees!

First one is Smeaton's Bridge in Perth Craig (generally known as the Old Bridge or just Perth Bridge), then swinging round to look downstream to Queen's Bridge, both seen from the viewing platform that juts out from Tay Street.

The tree trunk images are reminiscent of an acrobat part way through a full twist.

Thanks too for allowing us to see the images at a larger size. The Tay is lovely in grey while the flowers add bright spots of colour.

When I say "pubs" by the way, I mean perhaps one pub, one drink, in the middle of one day, hours before I go home... Wouldn't want the police monitoring the blogosphere to think "the big guy in the corner" was driving home pissed every Thursday evening after a pub crawl in Perth.

They do look rather acrobatic, now you mention it Susan.

I had exaclty the same thought as Susan about the first photo!

Both of those tree photos are very beautiful :-)

There was one strawberry tart left, and the nice young waitress said, "Sorry! You can't have it, Sir, it's for that little old lady behind you!"

I tried to stop visiting that place. But the walker doesn't pay attention to the new direction I give it.

Great photos. Amazing that a gray sky in the countryside looks so much better than one in a city.

Nice waitress and good walker!

So interesting to see the River Tay running through your Perth Andrew, I must take some more shots of the Swan River running through my Perth, there are probably many similarities.

Swan River? They should have called it the Tay :)
