I left my heart in Tokyo; Natsumi Hayashi.

This particular self-portrait was also a tribute to her cat, Guru, who had died that afternoon.

I have been infatuated with Tokyo-based photographer Natsumi Hayashi's images for quite a while now.

Using an SLR with an extremely slow shutter speed, she jumps multiple times to achieve her perfect "levitating" shots. They make me miss my time in Tokyo immensely, and through their surreal quality also remind me of how foreign it felt there at first.

All of the above are taken from her website, and you can also keep up to date with this fantastic floating girl on facebook.
