H is for High Places on ABC Wednesday




The top photo was a ride taken at a fair. The passengers would free fall for several seconds probably like from a height of a 12 story building. I rode something similar at an amusement park and it was the longest 5 seconds of my life.

The second photo was taken looking up inside a hotel. It was fun taking those windowed elevators. You can feel your ears pop going to the top floors, but don't look down.

Jean, thanks for the answers. I always look forward to Wednesdays and guess what your dogs are feeling.

Denise, I don't like heights either. Just look at the horizon.

Hin Man/Digital Flower/Neva/David,
Thanks for your compliments. It really means a lot coming from good photogs such as yourselves. I can't wait to see your "I" pictures next week.

I've been on a similar ride...... Never ever again.

I love the second shot.

Ali said...

Wow, two fantastic shots for this weeks entry. The second is my favourite, it's stunning.

Delighted to see you want to be a showbiz photographer and that your work has been published as well.

Keep a record of it in a full-size portfolio.

And try and get a foot in, with showbiz magazines and newspapers.

It will happen, if you want it to. Trust me.

Mike/Ali, I appreciate your compliments. By the way, I rarely ride rollercoasters anymore. ;P

Hi David, Thanks for the tip. :)
