The trees can't fly, but the rotor contraption is flying.

Most things can fly if sufficient force is applied to it ...

John, you made me laugh out loud so early in the morning. What an idea, fly-shirts!
Bjørn, your slow-shutter-applied-force-paper-plane is admirable :)
Peter's soap bubbles are also a great idea, however, the shadow in the levitation shot looks funny.

Bjørn great concept as well as execution. The motion makes it.

I had a rush order for a front page and used my son for a model during the noon recess at his school. Rushed the films to the lab, 45 minutes waiting while films were processed and I read the newspaper,  found a frame that could be used, and had the slide at the printer's just before they closed for the day.

Oh, sweet film days ... or not. Their charm has gone stale.

Thanks Jakov :)

Great shot Bjørn in that 'torture-room'.  Reminds me how many 'planes' I shoot off there in the past.
