I am not afraid of heights but what's being done in these pictures takes that meaning to a whole new level.
I find these pictures beautiful by the unique perspective and the juxtaposition they pose.
They almost scream silence, given how breathtaking, I hope you like them to!
















Even this guy gets his chance!

Those are very beautiful views.... They are either very brave or incredibly ignorant.

But, as far as I am concerned

Yep. makes my palms sweat looking at the pictures. Dunno if this is art. But i guess that's in the eyes of the beholder right?

By nature, I am absolutely terrified of heights. Yet I force myself to do things like ride roller coasters and sky dive or go up to the top floor of skyscrapers and take in the view. I am scared but for some reason I like the feeling. Go figure, I guess I am weird.

Those are some stunning and interesting pictures. I once took a picture very similar to the eleventh picture. The one with the girl in the red dress sitting on the ledge. Just more provocative. The girl in the picture I took also had red hair. They are almost exactly the same. The composition of the picture and perspective. Not the girls. It blows my mind. I would post the picture but it for sure violates the T&Cs.

i know theres a word to describe what im feeling when i see these pictures.
Anyone know what its called?

On some of them im trying to figure out how they got up there and how theyre going to get back down.


Whenever im in a situation like this close to a high edge i Devolutionise and drop as low as i can and spiderman crawl slowly towards the edge

A friend of mine directed the Sikorsky Skycrane in with the final piece of the CN Tower, then shimmied up it and lit a hand held flare.

Died years later in an 9.9hp, inflatable dinghy accident.

Would be a nice idea for a music video. Just throwing that out there.

As skunkape23 posted, many of these pictures were built on the backs of a generation that did these things for pennies an hour. My grandfather was a mason in Brooklyn, who came to this country from Romania, to work on just these very buildings in NYC. One day a load of bricks fell on his foot crushing and breaking every bone. He finished out the day and after work had my grandmother cut his boot off due to the swelling. He wrapped it up and went back to work the next day!
Definitely a generational difference in today's labor and theirs.

Intrepid - unfortunately every motion picture of space does not do it justice to how disorienting it must feel. But I haven't watched Gravity yet!

Elomen - you are right. How did they take that picture from that angle? Unless they were higher up then he was there is no other explanation. Then again, from what I've heard about Tom Cruise, that's not a hard thing to achieve!

Definitely an uncomfortable feeling.



Not sure if it's actual vertigo though, I think that's more extreme and always present when faced with heights. I guess if you don't have vertigo you can get accustomed to it.

Awesome shots. Reminds me of "Joe McNally's" Empire state climb. It seems to me though that joe's climb is more concerned with safety though. Personally I get the willies just thinking of stuff like this.

Do they climb these things illegally? Pretty sure the bridge was..

Would suck to die over a picture.

Heard of people dying in these parts from climbing bridges.
