Tuesday Photo Challenge – Breathe

Dutch goes the Photo!

Welcome to Week 104 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.  Just a quick note to let all of you know that last week’s round up will be published tomorrow.

As I just came back from a fantastic show by Brit Floyd, I’m a little inspired to take a hint from one of Pink Floyd’s songs that always has spoken to me, with this week’s theme of Breathe.  The opening lyrics are powerful, as they tell us to ‘Breathe, breathe in the air. Don’t be afraid to care.‘  Good advice for all of us, as a deep, cleansing breath can help center us in any situation.

For this challenge, look to share what Breathe means to you; whether it is something that reminds you to breathe deep, or gives you the urge to breathe it all in!  Have fun and I can’t wait to see what you share.
