A fellow photographer passes along No Promise of Safety, the blogging adventures of a urban explorer slash thrill seeker slash high-angle photographer. The address of the site is equally appropriate, uliveandyouburn (You Live and You Burn). Choose your adjective to describe this guy's actions. The photography is certainly amazing. He uses a Canon Rebel XTi and a tripod. And he has enough sense to at least include a Hate Mail section on his blog. There's probably a technical rescue response in this guy's future, what do you think?
I know what I’m doing mate. Most of the time any way. What makes you assume I don’t have the knowledge necessary to safely explore the stuff that I do?

Thanks for your note. I’m a glass half-empty type when I see scary scenarios. But then I am neither trained nor experienced in climbing or other high-angle activities.

I dont think Mikey was knocking your technical ascending skills, “Mate”, but simply making a lighthearted joke to the fire and rescue personnel who frequent this blog. While I admire your guts and photography skills, I cant help but wonder how long it will be before one of Raleigh’s Bravest has to pick you off- considering your statement above. Your human friend, which makes you subject to fallacy. Be safe.
