Paul Godard Portfolio

 Flora [67 images***** | random | see 169 more images**** | switch to videos]

Enchantment from forests in all corners of the globe, whether twisted, gnarled, or knotted or extending to the infinity of the skies.

Blessed with the opportunity to live in one of the richest floral kingdoms in the world, the diversity of this collection is proof that there is never a shortage of material to inspire me to pick up my camera.
