Rooftopping

Friday, July 29, 2011


It seems that even though I'm terrified of heights, I find all things up-high totally amusing. A brilliant Canada based photographer Tom Ryaboi started a new photography craze called "rooftopping". It pretty much consists of finding the tallest skyscrapers around the world, climbing them and taking a perfect shot of the view below! Tom finds the trend very addictive: “When you climb to the top of a skyscraper and open its hatch for the first time, a pure rush of adrenaline hits you as you overlook the city from above".

As for me, I will leave building-climbing to professionals and I'm happy to enjoy those gorgeous images from the comfort of my sofa :). Don't you just want to frame them? Lovelies, would you dare? xo

the first photo is out of control, it actually makes me feel.....well....you know i always say i'm not afraid of heights but then i get this feeling like i'm going to die, so maybe i am just a little afraid of heights.

my favorite rooftop i hung out on was the apt i lived in spanish harlem nyc with the african dancers. now that was a lot of fun.
