Yowayowa Camera Women Diary. An enjoyable photoblog: lots of jumping and rubber rain boots.

Wellies; they're wellies.

I don't know if I want to know what the text on each post says. The wordlessness is adding a lot for me.

...and cats. Don't forget the cats.

This is fascinating, I can't stop paging through it. Love the live preview, because I was just going to say what DU said - the mystery would surely be lost if I could read Japanese...

I like the cat on page three. It seems to find all the levitating... well, distasteful.

This is the place where all levitating girls in wellingtons are assembled, and here we see the end product, still in stasis, floating out of the factory for transportation.

Sorry, cat is here. Note to self: always link to cat.

本日の浮遊 just means something like "today's levitation." fuyuu means to float. Cute blog.

These are great. I have a shot (with boots even) that came out kind of floaty, but mostly by accident. How do they get the hair not flying everywhere? Or are they photoshopping out supports?

As a series, these are some of the most impressive photographs I've seen in at least a year. It seems as though the person in the images is the actual photographer, which is doubly impressive, because she makes for an amazing model.

"Girl jumping in the air" is the background for an amazingly rich exploration of ideas... human vs. landscape, frozen time vs. moment in time, history vs. technology, figural studies, passive expressions and expressive movements...

Her sense of color and composition are amazing, let alone her ability to expound upon larger issues in Japanese culture as well as Art in general.

so awesome.

They look like they're having a lot of fun.

The possibility of an accidental upskirt view.

Oh wait... that might be just me.

A bit of background context to the discussion.

I'm adding this to my RSS list, great inspiration.

I wonder why these self-portrait projects always seem to be made by women. Or maybe only those get to be popular enough to be noticed. *ponders*

oh god don't do that you're going to slip and die.

Photographer Christopher Wahl took this photo of me in 2001 - instructions were jump up with the feet, stay as straight as possible. Nailed it in one take. I'd be remiss, however, not to include one of my kids.

I never realized there were so many American cats over in Japan.

Glad to have found this. It is a unique work.

How does this pertain to Japanese culture? I want insight. :)

Thanks for the link, it is quite beautiful. They remind me of these images done by Anne Arden McDonald.

I get up, and nothing gets me down.
Might as well...
