If you're noticing that I'm AWOL online a lot more these days, that's because I am hopping from one town to another within England and further afield on photo shoots and filming for a project that will launch in September. I'll be on the road every week using every conceivable forms of transportation until the end of August. So far, I have thoroughly enjoyed the company and warm hospitality from many incredibly inspiring women. I can't wait to share more about them with you in less than two months' time. Thanks to them, I've managed to see parts of England I never knew existed.
The sight of the picturesque Tolpuddle with its thatched cottages lining either sides of the narrow main thoroughfare into the village gave me goosebumps. It was akin to being transported back in time to the reenactments of the traditional English village life that I've only ever seen in BBC historical documentaries. Fortunately for me, my visit coincided with their yearly Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival where thousands descend upon the tiny Dorset village to remember the sacrifice of 6 farm workers and celebrate trade unionism. So if you're a socialist.......this may be just your cup of tea.
