Thought I curate a series of my favourite jump shots from the past two and a half years, with thanks to Shini, Jen, and my siblings for their help in photographing these awesome shots.  It’s a retrospective of my odd addiction and fondness to body movement, shape shifting garment, sense of freedom, colour and hair thrashing, prickled like thousand needles hitting against my face.  Calories were lost and regained but had the flexibility and strength from my junior school era as a amateur dancer, athletics in long jumps and long distance running in adult era, let alone the excruciating limb-stretching yoga stunts. Pain scale, eight out of ten.  If I had an opportunity (of a life time), I’d love to learn how to do a back flip and perhaps…a split jump. Chuckling nervously inside silently, oh dream on.

    I think it’s so sweet that you’d love to know how to those back flips and split jumps. I find those body movements so utterly stunning, that’s why I love ballet so much – the harmony between flowing moves. I absolutely love these photos, they’re really gorgeous.

    I demand a back flip! Make it your 2013 resolution :)

    These are lovely and elegant and fun at the same time. Back flip and jump split, sounds difficult to master, you know you could go on Youtube for tips. Don’t get hurt!

    I saw the first few photos and thought….hmm…this girl has had dance training when she was younger. Very graceful. I’d best leave these type of poses to you and stick to my wannabe street-style poses (yes, the pretending to tuck hair back while looking down. I remembered your tip). I did 14 years of martial arts and if I ever tried your moves. it’d look like a footballer trying to perform a ballet recital.

  • Reply Lola 27th November 2012 at 01:34

    Awesome pictures, I have attempted these sort of shots but they never turn out any good, still fun to do though! and come on, who says you cant still learn how to do a back flip?! xx
