She's not an artist. She's a hot, crazy chick.
 
2013-01-31 01:45:15 AM
I can't ignore those feet.  I love pictures taken from airplanes, satellites, or basically anywhere I can't get to.  Feet get a hell no.  So, hell no.

I'd love to see these reshot without feet.

That made my palms sweaty. Thought not as bad as that kid who filmed himself free climbing on a construction crane the other day. Damned if I can find a link now, though.

I guess it is good to know how you are going to die. The question of when is still open for her.

She should climb onto my parapet. It's a long way up!

If you really need a sweaty palms fix, heres a worker free climbing to the top of a radio tower:

Gah. My feet get all tingly when I see this kind of shiat. No sweaty palms. But my feet feel like I'm already falling.

/Also, would not hit. Though I might give it a little nudge

Yeah, The Visor has long been a fun photo op.  At least, that's where I am in mine and I'm assuming he is.  The rocks are significantly different, not sure if that's due to some falling off or just the angle.

Here, then, this one:
www.majhost.com

It'd have been better, but the girl taking the photo wouldn't get closer than about ten feet from the edge and had started getting even further away after the other shot.
 
2013-01-31 03:47:22 AM
I need clarification. The photos are of a man's feet and legs, but the shot of the artist "running" along the building ledge shows a woman. Is she a man or transgender?

Either way, interesting perspectives.
 
2013-01-31 03:51:32 AM
... or, perhaps, not every woman's feet and legs are crafted from fine silk and porcelain, like mine.
 
2013-01-31 03:57:16 AM
Women have the same skin as men? The kind of skin that can be blemished or imperfect? THAT'S UNPOSSIBLE!
 
2013-01-31 04:00:21 AM
With any luck this will become a new meme and we'll get a few dozen stories of people falling off buildings while trying this.

RKade: Women have the same skin as men? The kind of skin that can be blemished or imperfect? THAT'S UNPOSSIBLE!


I thought the thick, stubby toes and feet were an indication of maleness, but then I read past the first few photo captions. Oops. We're all built differently, she's rocking it, and stubby toes don't matter anyway.

Is this the new planking?  I hope so, cuz then a lot of them will die.

The one of her "running" along the edge is is cool.... The others, not so much. Just my opinion!

Yeah, I'd imagine it's the same place, although I've never been there personally. The shot I posted was of Edward Muggeridge in 1872, and the albumen print is just labeled "Contemplation Rock, Glacier Point" which is likely an earlier name.

Very cool shots, btw! Is it as buttock-clenching as photos make it look?

Foot fetishist photos when she was on impressive drugs. I'm sure she still doesn't know where the weird dreams are coming from.

Amatuer.


My great grandmother's brother was a construction worker back in the day. He was working on a
skyscraper in Philly, I believe, when he fell. The man fell 10+ stories and landed on his FEET, breaking
damn near every bone in his lower body but he survived. He also narrowly missed straddling a steel
girder on the way down. How he was ever able to walk again is beyond me, but he did.

Just a couple of feet above the ground. What's the big deal?
 
2013-01-31 05:48:16 AM
Damn.  Those knees are sharp enough to cut steel!

A few of those freaked me out.  Being afraid of heights was tough being a paratrooper, especially sitting in the door of a Huey or Black Hawk!  After you reach jump altitude they remove the belt holding you in and are still banking all over the place getting to the drop zone!
