Abstract: In 2008 Norfolk Islander Bev McCoy drew for me a site-specific depiction of the offshore fishing ground name 'Shallow Water'. I explore the ideation and movement of linguistic pilgrimage through naming and explore how this posing is relevant to aesthetic understandings of the study of placenames (toponymy). Toponymy and its site-specificity in terms of drawing as diminished object and the perils of being a spectator to drawing are presented as a creative gesture implicating mobility and emotional interpretations of language and geography.
