Ottery St Marys 2015

Ottery St Marys 2015 from Darragh Mason Field.
The Tar Barrel runs are held in Ottery St Mary's, Devon, England. A tradition built around the November the 5th bonfire night celebrations. Only people from the town can run the barrels. They run in teams carrying the huge barrels through the crowded narrow streets as people jump out of the way! I really enjoyed the event, it was wild and had the perfect balance of fun and danger. It will form part of my 'British' series, which will compile my shots from festivals and events from around the country that are quintessentially British.
Further to that one of my shots from the night ran in the Telegraph.
The final essay can be seen here.
