I so wanted to be an Angel
This is a technique called camera toss.
For truly amazing photos done with this technique search for a group called "camera toss" in flickr. (Who would-a thunk it huh).
I like it. The name came from my posture, looks like I am trying to fly. I couldn't get off the ground, I am too heavy (or is it my soul that is too heavy?).
I am actually trying to catch the camera.
