"So I stopped jumping and apologized to them by saying, 'I am taking jumping photos for my wedding party's slide show.' "Then, I took one of the best levitation shots of the entire series. " "We are all surrounded by social stress as we are bound by the forces of earth's gravity," Natsumi says when asked why she took on the series.

But they were clownin.’ Six Flags will never rebuild here.” That’s sad, but much of New Orleans has not been restored to her former glory.
