Great tyro 2019-08-12 4:20

Hello Jean,

So these were the Morris dancers who were attracting all the crowds in your last picture!

This is a remarkably colourful group, especially with their rather spooky painted faces, and you have captured them perfectly here, their strong colours standing out vividly against the somewhat grey surroundings.


Kind Regards,


P.S. A quick "Google" suggested to me that this group might just be the Alton Morris - what do you think?

Default To tyro: old scan

Thank you John for your kind remarks and for adding this to tour favourites.
This is actually an old scan, made years ago but improved with PSE recently. I adjusted the terrible original colours and considered posting it that way. But I was still not quite satisfied. The colours now looked fairly dull. So I got the idea to give it a sepia tone, which of course was much better.
I have no particular memories of taking this photo, but I don't think I was nervous. Although it was a very conservative religious city, the atmosphere was calm and polite and I felt totally safe in every narrow alley. And that man probably never even saw me.
Kind regards,
