Not for the Faint at Heart

... is working in rain and wind on the new roof of Vancouver's BC Place Stadium.
The stadium was once the world's largest AIR SUPPORTED DOME stadium (so I read in Wikipedia). It was built in 1983 for EXPO 86 and holds 60.000 spectators. The roof was removed over a year ago and is now being replaced.

    I feel dizzy. Wouldn't be able to perform such a job. Perhaps even not to take such a picture:) Cheers, V.

    Das ist wirklich nichts, wenn ich richtig verstehe, für schwache Nerven. Aber dir ist ein ganz tolles Foto gelungen, so etwas sieht man nicht alle Tage! Super Schnitt und Perspektive!

    : )))))))) no, no, definitely not for the faint of heart!! nor for the ones who tend to suffer from YIKES, VERTIGO! they need to embrace it, see it as a gift rather than a curse to go climbing around those amazing giant clothes pins – i really don't envy them at all, your brave and heroic spidey patrol ; ))! in fact, i think i might not even have been able to take this picture!! what a great vantage point!! you must have been right there incognito among them – oh wait, the "real peter parker" was a photographer, too, wasn't he ?? ; ))) hugs, sabine. p.s.: i was having some fun here with "wikiquote" ; ))…
