Introspective by Andrew Paranavitana


Available to buy on…

I went down to St Kilda (Australia) with Cas today for a shoot. The sun was out and Spring appears to have made a comeback in Melbourne. This is St Kilda pier, the building at the end is a club house. The pier is one of the areas many landmarks.
