Ross & Mummy.

Ross & Mummy, Calgary Bay, Mull.



  1. I had a dream last night that I had gone to collect a car that had been left parked somewhere. But to my dismay the paintwork had been vandalised, as somebody had written a message which was somehow eroded into the paintwork. I puzzled about the nature of the writing both in my dream and when I woke up. In my dream I wondered if a finger dipped in paint stripper would have produced the effect.

    Upon waking I puzzled why I should dream about writing that had such a strange texture. The paintwork seemed softened, where damaged, and there was a trail of debris around the writing. But then I remembered what was probably the last thing I did last night before retiring to bed; yes I was admiring this image. Suddenly all became clear.

  2. I like the way the exposure catering for the glare, and the cloud over it, renders the headland on the right as a near-silhouette. Presumably some Ross long ago left here and went to Canada! The human presence inferred from the beach graffiti is very effective, particularly when set against an apparently empty beach. It’s a good way to depict a place like this.

  3. makes me miss summer, holiday sick instead of homesick.

    A fun picture with all the elements I need to make me miss the warmth of summer.

  4. I like the emptiness. It makes the scene universal and remainds of days spent with the girls on the beaches of northumbria.

    The trail in the sand reminds me of a rope or umbilical cord or air hose reaching to the almost-figures in the sea.

  5. I like it as well. I’d like to think that I would have taken this if I’d been there and in much the same way.
