Jack in the Green

We British like to dress up and have fun. Here are some shots of the May celebrations in Hastings Sussex. The procession ends at Hastings Castle where Jack is "slain" to "release the spirit of summer" There are more photos in my gallery if you are interested.

Info; taken with NX1000 and 20-50mm, processed in PSE 10 and Topaz. The 20-50mm is a great lens but does not like very bright conditions at 50mm, needs a hood. My NX1000 sensor tends towards a green tint, so a bit of green channel reduction applied.

Start in Old Town Hastings

Jack himself (the one with the crown)

Morris dancers

Lords and Ladies

Some of the drummers

Some more

I have no idea!

More Morris Men (and girls)


End of a long march
