That scale fosters the feeling of community; whether in a cafe on the Perth Road or a pub in the city centre, a hike up Balgay Hill or a walk along the esplanade, you always bump into people you know or recognise faces you pass.

The Big-Little city. Dundee.

I find myself longing to come back, drawing creative inspiration and hopefully giving back along the way.
