Japanese girl’s incredible ‘levitation’ photos

In case they’ve passed you by to date, these images are just too incredible not to share. Tokyo teenager Natsumi Hayashi has an odd, but incredibly fascinating hobby – she takes photographs of herself jumping, until she gets a perfectly clear shot that looks like she’s levitating.

Witness her ‘flying’ around the house with a vacuum cleaner, down the street and down a railway platform. The shots have a magical quality about them that belie the hectic pace of Tokyo and add a touch of mysticism. Oh, and they’re damn cool.
