Risky practices...

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Rui Lopes, Jun 4, 2007.

  1. From time to time we all do risky things to capture "that" shot. Today, I found myself shooting on the top of a roof, just to capture an unusual perspective of some old churches, for a work I'm doing on religious stuff:

    Beautiful place, Rui!

    Maybe we should start a New Post: What's the craziest/most dangerous thing you've done to get a photo?
     
  5. heh nice pics, kwl subject and all.
    i agree with you bolts and that new post idea of urs:p
    ive also done some crazy stuff just to get a pic, and also waited hours just to get the right light and stuff...
     
  6. Ok.Let's play. Show us how crazy you were to get a pic

    Thanks for the kind comments.
    Besides the actual risk (I only realized how risky it was as I walked today around the place and looked at the roof from the street), I had to ask for authorization to get there... well... lots of explanations and the need to fulfill a formal request. I must say that the building where I shot from is the Oporto university headquarters and nowadays with this thing of terrorism...
    Now, I find the suggestion of a thread showing what we sometimes do to take pics, very interesting.
    Please share your experiences.
