DAREDEVIL

Looking out of my daughter's window in Vaucluse, Sydney, I saw this daredevil. He was standing on the cliff overlooking the ocean about to tight rope walk across to the next cliff. I was glad to see that he was attached to the rope.
 I zoomed in for this shot.

 Then he edged out, sitting on the rope.

I zoomed out to give you an idea of where he was.

 Now gingerly he tries to stand. It took him a few goes. He would fall off and swing back up again.

 Amazing.

Wow he's doing it.

 Oooops down he goes.

 Back up again, now he's got the hang of it.

 And makes it to the other side.

 Then he slides back. The view is fabulous from the apartment but this entertainment was a bonus.

Sadly we go home back to Brisbane today. Thankfully it is only a one and a half hours flight.

  4. God - almost wrote a profanity at seeing this!!!
    That - roped on or not - is what I call a "Suicide Mission".
    Some clown is bound to try this - minus the "saving" attached
    leg rope!
    Otherwise beautiful scenery, but I bet that was not foremost
    on your mind or camera??

    A sunny but not a "sauna" day awaits you here on your return.
    Cheers

    1. Well expressed Jo-Anne!
      However, this would have been totally supervised.
      So I am bloody sure every safety aspect was covered.

  10. We have to give him high marks for determination. Your own entertainment from the window. My goodness, what a daredevil that young man is. I can't help but wonder what his mother would think if she saw him tackle this stunt.

  11. thanks heavens my daredevil son has never tried that trick. Well, I don't think he has. As the mother of an adventurous spirit, I'm sure that young man knew very well what he was doing. But what a show for you and in such a spectacular setting.

  12. I'm surprised at how many people do this. We see them here about twice a month.

  31. Life is like a battle, if you don't know how to defense yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
