A very small part of the Great North Wood after which my area was named (although I've now moved over the border by 100yds into Streatham). The name now is shortened to Norwood. The remaining area of woods called Sydenham Hill woods at a mere 9 hectares is one of many small areas along with Dulwich woods and Dulwich upper woods some of the denser parts which have not been turned into open Parkland like nearby Streatham comon, Sydenham Wells Pk and Crystal Palace Pk but have instead been kept as they are and designated as wildlife sanctuaries. These are precious green spaces in the suburbs of our crowded city and very jealously guarded.

The perspective you adopted works to lead the viewer into the greenery with an anticipation for what lies further on.

One is very thankful for the green spaces in urban areas and that people of a previous generation felt driven to save that space... I'm thinking here of Stanley Park in Vancouver, B.C. and what that city would be like today if the area given over to Stanley Park had been developed... a true beauty spot in the world would have become just another city with a harbour.

One of the things on my bucket list is to travel to the UK and go on a photo shoot with you, Vic. You always find the most compelling and inviting paths to pull the viewer in, head over heals, into a wonderful adventure exploring.

Love the greens Vic, a pleasant wander could be had although perhaps bumpy for either my walker of the O2 trolley,
