Thanks so much for your comments and votes on my previous upload. I am glad you liked the vertigo. Answering Malc's question: My heart was racing and I was nauseated, I let myself go on my back to the ground to fight the vertigo after shooting. I was not standing to take the shot I was on my stomach on the concrete wall (which is very thick, fortunately).
I HAD to take that shot, knowing there were no more chances of going up there. Wink
Thanks for your support, always so kind my dear fellow EPZrs.

Sorry about the vertigo, Marian. This is an amazing photo. It has a great sense of verticality and altitude, as well as abstraction. I love it. So,sorry you will not make it up there, but I think that you are not sorry?

Don't think I fully appreciated how you took yesterday's image.
Do take care of yourself Marian.
Another amazing image today.
I'll certainly look differently at buildings and architectural images
after all these uploads.

Yes, I am sorry because it is a wonderful view of the city and the mountain. I wish I had a clear day. The mountain is the best we have in Caracas.

I am so glad these shots have had an effect on you! Smile
I am honored and grateful for your sincerity. Not to worry about my safety I am at ground level most of the time! Smile
Thanks for commenting the pictures, I will always be happy to explain anything you want to know.

Another amazing image Marian. The reflections seem distorted in the glass, and once again taken from high up.

Very dramatic and detailed picture, Marian.
If you suffer from vertigo, these shots are even more worthy of praise.

This is well up to your usual high standard, Marian... a wonderful image, so cleverly composed.
Makes me think of the New York images of Ernst Haas.

(And you are so brave in your approach to grasping opportunities...dog attacks..vertigo...but no gun-toting gangsters I hope!!!)

This is disorientating rather than vertiginous for me, I am trying to see where reality gives way to the illusion of reflections and there's no clear cut-off. I love it when that happens!
Very cleverly composed, particularly having the nice, neat, correct vertical glazing bars on the left to hold everything in place. Really strong.

LOVE those distorted reflections!
I salute you for taking full advantage of a situation that you obviously found difficult.

For many years I organised school visits to the Paris region; the visits inevitably included going up the Eiffel Tower (this was before the opening of EuroDisney which has regrettably proved a greater attraction since).
Now my head for heights has never been good so I approached the experience of taking the lifts right to the top with trepidation. Not good to let the children see that I'm scared stiff. But I got over the experience, glad all the while not to be going back for another year.
The next year was easier - just - and the year after easier still. The time came when I found queuing for the lift back down less pleasant than the nervous tension; and one year I got so fed up with waiting that I decided to take the stairs down. And of course the stairs, while well protected, are open to the air!
