Might as well jump

One of the first gifts the Mrs. gave me 18 years ago was an extraordinary book -- a collection of photographs by Philippe Halsman, a famous photographer from the '50s and '60s who, in this particular work, caught dozens of his celebrity subjects in mid-air after he asked them to leap up.

Some of those photos are currently on display in an exhibit in the Big Apple, prompting this nice review, and this slideshow. Check out the whole book if you ever get the chance. Go ahead and jump.

I've had a copy for years. I especially like the photo of Learned Hand.
