Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPblackandwhitevideo
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
This weekend’s tag was #WHPblackandwhitevideo, which asked participants to capture creative videos in black and white. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.
”A sweet-looking Japanese girl who, one day, decided to take self-portraits..of herself levitating. She can be spotted in and around Tokyo, equipped with her SLR and her self-timer. When she feels the moment strike, she presses the shutter button down and then, quite literally, “jumps” into place. What I love most about her shots is that they don’t feel forced. Natsumi has a way of making us feel as though she naturally levitates throughout life. When I asked her how others react to her jumping around Tokyo, here is a funny story that she shared. “One day, when I was jumping at a famous sightseeing spot in western Tokyo, workers at a souvenir shop were frightened by how I was jumping. They were whispering things like ‘Is the girl mentally ill’ and ‘Do we need to call the police?’ “So I stopped jumping and apologized to them by saying, ‘I am taking jumping photos for my wedding party’s slide show.’ Their faces turned bright red, and they said things like ‘Oh dear!’ and ‘Congratulations!’ and even ‘Keep jumping!’
Memories: Magnetic Rose (1995)
De niño escuche, si no veis nada, volved hacia atrás, tomad distancia.
Prenden otra vez las luces en las casas, la ropa interior de esta noche extraña.
Cenas Ajenas - Vetusta Morla
This is nothing new
No, no just another phase of finding
what I really need
Is what makes me bleed
But like a new disease, Lord she’s still too young to treat
