Floral Friday and stepping through doors

"Imagine there is a closed door in front of you. Describe the door, what it looks like, feels like, what kind of handle or latch it has.
When you are ready, imagine you take a step forward and open the door ready to step through. What do you find on the other side?"
(This is a journal prompt.)

When thinking about this topic, I remember last Monday when I walked home from yoga. I wanted to buy a flower for a picture. I usually pass by a flower shop that has a lot of flowers outside. A huge soft lilac bloom pleased me most. I didn't like to take it by myself, so I was looking for the salesperson. The door was open and I entered the first time this shop (see above). No sales person was in sight. What an opportunity to take some pictures. After a while I left the shop again, nobody was there, it seemed so.
Sometimes doors are open and one only has to step over the beam. Surprises can wait behind. I was in awe when I saw this sea of flowers, this mirror and dark red curtain.

On Google+ are these weekday games for photographers: WomenWednesday, ThirstyThursday, FloralFriday and so on. It's fun to share pictures to these topics. You can circle me on Google+, a link is on the right side of this blog.

Friday already. I'm happy that I can go to a Mysore class. Especially back bending will get attention. Yesterday I took a movie of my dropping back into urdhva dhanurasana. It was shocking. There is an improvement for sure. My feet are much closer to each other and parallel. I don't bend the knees and go forward anymore, I stretch upwards. Nevertheless it looked all very weak and my hands are still too far away from my feet in order to be able to come up. It feels so intensive. Feelings can bluff.

Lightbox is a javascript plugin - a jQuery one to be more precise ... it makes your photos pop up with that nice effect when clicked , they don't open anymore in separate pages.
