Ha!... just about 10 seconds ago I was thinking that perhaps I should have said "Might as well jump" in the caption

Great pic. Now if you could just get Albert Einstein to jump in front of your lens..., oh wait..., Philippe Halsman already did that.

Whoops! Maybe he didn't get Einstein to jump, but he did get Richard Nixon. I always confuse those two.

I've tried getting dead guys to jump but life's too short.

BTW... here's an article about Philippe Halsman's "jump" pictures.

That sure looks like fun. Oh to be able to jump like that.

You mean..., you mean... Nixon's DEAD? Oh no! That means I won't be able to take a picture of him skydiving.

Seriously, Halsman was a terrific photographer. Getting people to jump was not just a gimmick. Here's a link to some of his portrait work.
