Attractive forces are for suckers. At least that's what Tokyo photographer Natsumi Hayashi would have you believe. These anti-grav self portraits are just some of the daily "levitations" posted by Hayashi on her photoblog. Notably, these pictures aren't doctored in any way, with Hayashi preferring to rely on good old-fashioned jumping to create the illusion of levitation.

"Sometimes I need to jump more than 300 times to get the perfect shot," she told MSNBC's Laura T. Coffey. "I set the camera with the shutter speed of 1/500 second or faster to freeze my jumping movement."
