Downward doors is a yoga pose similar to downward dog, but used by photographers taking photos of doors that are below street level. This pose shouldn’t be held too long, Yogi Norm warns, lest the photographer’s friends and family move too far for the photographer to easily catch up and because there are many more doors left to photograph. You have been warned!

I took care when shooting these three doors in Luxeuil-les-bains in France. I didn’t want to strain my muscles and not be able to make it to the bakery and coffee shop! (Full disclosure: I know you’ll be relieved to know that I held each pose for just the right amount of time and was thus able to fully appreciate both shops .)

The flowers certainly add to the ambiance of this door. Not so sure about the plants on the stairs. 🙂
