Architecture Surrounding the Sky

While we’ve all experienced photography that makes us feel dizzy, it’s usually when the subjects’ feet aren’t firmly planted on the ground. Precariously dangling on the edge of buildings or outside helicopters, these daredevils show us just how far they’re willing to go to get that incredible shot.
