Pagan Eye: Fowlers Troop Jack in the Green
This picture shows Fowlers Troop and the Deptford Jack in the Green crossing the Millennium Bridge, in London, on May Day, 1st May 2012.
Jack in the Green, dressed in foliage and accompanied by musicians and Morris dancers, is a familiar sight these days in May Day celebrations, thanks in part to The Blackheath Morris Men, who revived the historic tradition and now take Jack to the streets of London every year on May 1.
The photo was taken by Sarah Crofts and you can read more about the day here: http://www.deptford-jack.org.uk/mayday2012.htm
I'm always delighted to be sent photos to post on my blog. On each Pagan Eye post, I show a photo that I find interesting, with a few words about it. The pictures can be a seasonal image, a pagan site, an event or something of historic interests.
If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself and you must confirm that you are submitting it for A Bad Witch's Blog.
