Selfies are the latest craze. So here are some extreme ones that are worth a look-see! Enjoy!


This photo of Christian taking a selfie as he runs for his life at a bull run
at Baytown, Texas.


Kiril Oreshkin, an original daredevil photographer,
who likes taking selfies when he has the disadvantage
of falling to his death from tall skyscrapers.









Dirt Bikers practicing their biking and photography skill at the same time.


When a camel bites you, you have to have some kind of record for when you tell the story.


Another day at the job, working hard at the construction of a building
and finding the time to take a selfie at those heights.


This fighter pilot taking selfies.


Hot Air Balloon selfie.


A skydiving selfie is the kind that we'd all like to participate in
if we have the courage to jump of a plane at that height!




catching the waves.



Cheers!

Ummm....I think these people are a little crazy. Risk assessment should always be observed. Some of these may have been created, it is surprising how much you can do with software. Look at some of the hands of the people holding on to the buildings hanging way down. Some do not show the characteristics of holding a lot of weight for even a small period of time. They would mostly be white fingered or knuckled. I hope others do not see these and think they can do this stuff. Well, it would weed out some of the people that can't rationalize that peer pressure is not a good thing. Survival of the wisest. It seems that everyone succumbs to peer pressure once in a while though.

I'd never parrot what these pictures show, it is bad enough getting hurt because others do risky things. You get hurt enough doing things that are required to survive, doing something for an ego trip is not even logical.

Wow even after looking away for a bit, I'm still dizzy.

I'd like to dismiss them as crazy but it's more than that. No doubt they are cool with the idea of death understanding what it is to face one's fears head on and live like there's no tomorrow. It literally takes that sort of awareness to have the drive to do something like that.

Amazing feat of inner and outer strength!

Those "hanging from a stupidly high building" shots are too much for me-just looking at them gives me tummy flutters-Yep,I hate heights.
I loved the camel pic though-I would have that framed on my wall if it happened to me.

You should doubt what (if anything) they think about death. You know, they don't call them "immortals" for no reason. That term, if you don't know means they think themselves bulletproof.

I usually just call it stupid, or natural selection in progress. The guy hanging from buildings I wouldn't attribute to strength or awareness, it's more of just pure stupidity. "Bro take a photo of me while I hang off of the top of this skyscraper from one hand!"
There's nothing to face, just either you will fall to your death or you won't, because you decided to hang of the edge of a skyscraper for a picture.

Brave?......I think we differ on our definition of brave........insane comes to mind......and pity for his mother.

By definition 2, 4 and 5 are not selfies. Both hands are visible and there is no device in them. The catching the wave one is incredible. One of the best 3 I've ever seen! Thanks for sharing.

Not physically possible given the speed of the aircraft.

I think that's possible if the speed is slow enough. Notice his hair swept back by the force of the wind!

Maybe the word on the fuselage could offer a clue ...

" Perspective " ?
