Daily Photo Challenge: Millennium Ghosts Revisited

This is the one thing I didn’t photograph in Millennium Ghosts – there wasn’t enough light – and you may well wish I hadn’t bothered going back to finish the shoot. At the time, every town and village had its Millennium Circle, with a central standing stone to remind us of our Neolithic past.

This is Campbeltown’s contribution.

Pathetic, isn’t it? It’s not just the size, which completely fails to dominate or define the space around it, but the design (if such a word can be used in this context). It looks as if someone plonked a heap of industrial rubble in the centre and called it good. Here it is in the round.

Notice the suggestion of a seat – facing away from the loch! – with an empty space for an inscription. Apparently everyone was speechless.
