Redburn Forest

November 4, 2013

Today’s walk returned me to Redburn Forest, it is on the outskirts of Holywood, my home town and extends over the Holywood Hills with views over Belfast. I haven’t been there in a long time but as a kid one of my best friends lived opposite and from the age if 7 or 8 we would spend many afternoons there. It was a place that fired my imagination – we built dens, played commandos and Robin Hood and generally ran riot. I think it is one of the places that has formed the artist I am today.
It was a beautiful, bright Autumn day today and seeing the woods in that light brought back that excitement I had as a kid. As usual I took lots of photos- I didn’t collect anything today, but I plan on returning. I really want to do a series of pieces based on this place, possibly referencing my childhood adventures. An attempt of capture the wonder, excitement and magic I felt back then and which I still feel now.
In the meantime here are a few photos to give a sense of the place.
