I love jump-pictures for their immediate pure sense of joy. The one on top was made of me, at the beautiful beach of Chiclana (south of Spain).
Philippe Halsman made lots of jumping pictures, believing that the act of jumping brings out the inner essence of people. I do agree!!! Here is no hiding behind a cool or elegant pose... it needs a good dose of self-mockery (which is very attractive, I think).
You can find more springy inspiration in his "Jump Book".
Jump up and touch the sky!
