Morris Dancing

Morris dancing?
Oh sure! Everyone knows about Morris dancing, don't they?
Actually, after some preparatory googling (circa 2004), I was thus ready to add my own documentary addition to this notable tradition.
Supposedly each move has a meaning... Yeah right.
Kind of a regional dialect thing I guess.
But, in fact, the level of enthusiasm was pretty inspiring - I went for a run.

All photos are taken at the May Day celebration, on May 1, 2004 in Oxford, England, using a Canon digital rebel.
