Vertigo-Inducing Photography

Tom Ryaboi

Daily Mail recently called it the “new heart-stopping photography craze” that's sweeping the globe. Rooftopping is when a brave photographer takes a daring photo at the edge of a skyscraper or very tall building. With their feet, often times, dangling over the edge, they snap away – showing us a view most of us could never imagine witnessing ourselves.

Today, we bring you a compilation of vertigo-inducing photos that include rooftopping pictures, aerial shots and more. If you're one of those people who suffers from acrophobia or gets a little dizzy at extreme heights, may we suggest that you turn away. For the rest of you, enjoy some of the best adrenaline pumping photos taken from high above! May they bring out the daredevil in you. (Just, please be careful.)
