Photographer Murad Osmann truly captures his travels from his own perspective. In his "Follow Me To" project, almost all of his shots feature his gorgeous girlfriend Nataly Zakharova's back (often clad in amazing costumes and designer gowns) with her hand reaching back to pull him forward into some kind of awe-inspiring scenery. His romantic shots tell a love story that will make you long for adventure and a travel companion to share your beautiful surroundings with.
