Sanctuary by Andrew Paranavitana

I was roaming around the neighbourhood with my camera a few days ago and decided I would do the unthinkable and snap up some floral pieces. I’m not a guy who generally likes “pretty things”, so I thought this one would be a bit of a challenge for myself.

Let me know what you think, this one’s a bit of a stretch of my style!
