Jute, Jam, Journalism and Oor Wullie! by jamibann

Jute, Jam, Journalism and Oor Wullie!

I've (and @sarah19) mentioned the Oor Wullie Bucket Trail before, and have posted some images from the trail in Aberdeen. I was in Dundee yesterday and whilst walking through the town was able to capture a few of the Oor Wullie's down there. This was my favourite - I know very little about Dundee, but I've never forgotten, from school days, being told that Dundee was famous for the three J's - Jute, Jam and Journalism (no longer the case, sadly). So, it was appropriate that this Wullie, designed by Geoff Gunning, and who sits outside the Malmaison Hotel in Dundee, was given a slot on 365 for today.
You just have to smile when you see them!!!
And I'm of the 'Three Js for Dundee ' era too. It seems to be developing a more positive profile after several decades of poverty and challenges.
Must visit soo. There's so much to see now.

I like the way you framed him with the arch of the building.

(Thanks for liking the caption given to my "Signs" pic.)

It looks like it's made from a pot of jam. Nice composition and POV.

How cool -- it does look like its made of jam or jellies. What an interesting idea for sculptures.
