”A sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits..of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, “jumps” into place. What I love most about her shots is that they don’t feel forced. Natsumi has a way of making us feel as though she naturally levitates throughout life. When I asked her how others react to her jumping around Tokyo, here is a funny story that she shared. “One day, when I was jumping at a famous sightseeing spot in western Tokyo, workers at a souvenir shop were frightened by how I was jumping. They were whispering things like ‘Is the girl mentally ill’ and ‘Do we need to call the police?’ “So I stopped jumping and apologized to them by saying, ‘I am taking jumping photos for my wedding party’s slide show.’ Their faces turned bright red, and they said things like ‘Oh dear!’ and ‘Congratulations!’ and even ‘Keep jumping!’
Pretty cool Google Doodle for Valentine’s Day with animals going on dates. The Bear taking the Octopus to the sushi joint is my fav.
Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra recently completed this gigantic 170 ft mural on Paulista Avenue, one of Sao Paulo’s busiest streets. The colourful piece is a tribute to Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who passed away last December at the age of 104. Kobra and a team of four other artists worked six hours a day to complete the mural, and some of the colorful forms are based on Niemeyer’s works. Photographer Alan Teixeira is on the scene with these beautiful shots.
