Photography at its most inspiring.

 These are some photographs taken by Natsumi Hayashi, a young girl from Tokyo Japan.  She creates a very magical feel with her abstract caption of what daily life would be like for someone who never touches the ground.  For these self portraits Hayashi will snap hundreds of photographs, all of herself jumping, until she captures the right shot. This girl is just wonderful photographer.

“The only way to get a right timing for a shot is jumping a lot,” Hayashi said in an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mail, dispelling our hopeful illusions that she’s the first human being who can actually fly. “Sometimes I need to jump over 100 times to get a right shot” She does this in front of her camera, mounted on a tripod, and continues to do so until she achieves that perfect, natural-looking “levitation.”

 “I got the idea from an English idiom that says ‘to have one’s feet firmly planted on the ground,” she continued. “In Japan, we have the exact same idiom. But I am not a practical person at all. Therefore, I try ‘not to have my feet firmly on the ground’ in my self-portrait photos to show my true self.”

Tumblr Vs WordPress

When it comes to my Tumblr and my WordPress I feel like a parent who loves one child more then the other, and its very obvious which one I love more. Its sad to say but Tumblr is just a much more smooth and simple (lazy ass) way to Blog.

So in order to make it seam like I love both of my children equaly, I will start posting one (baby steps) tumblr post on my blog. Sound good? Ok, so lets get this started;

That will just have to tide you over until Tumblr connects to facebook or you all get tumblr! GET A TUMBLR!
