I would like to share with you a series of photographs entitled PEACE which I received this morning, from blog I follow, called Broken Light.
Broken Light is a community of photographers living with or affected by mental illness and who support each other through photographs.
It’s an excellent blog and I highly recommend it.

“This series of photographs is called ‘PEACE.’ It was taken at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, where these flowers and general atmosphere promote peace and a sense of wellbeing. It is so very peaceful to be there, floral beauty all around you, and the fragrances of the flowers and even a waterfall. The air itself smells like PEACE! It meant so much for me to visit there and get my bearings when I wasn’t feeling well.”
