Hanging by a thread…

I wasn’t born to fly.

I don’t think I will ever be comfortable to work at heights.

I’m not acrophobic, but it doesn’t mean I like being up there — hanging by a thread…

*Near Suzukakedai Station, Tokyo, Japan

  2. Tempting but you’re out of luck. Just printed out a series of beach photos I took from Cyprus specifically for that purpose.

    • Oh well, a photo of four men hanging on a thread wouldn’t match the beach theme.

      Btw, looking forward to see your Cyprus photos :-)…

      • Don’t think will be publishing those apart from the few I used in today’s post. Last thing my “Manchester” blog needs is more street photos and sea pictures of Cyprus.

  4. What are they doing? Window cleaning? Repairs?

    • To be honest, this is just a guess.

      Do you notice that the wall have brick-like layer? I think they were doing some inspection/maintenance on those brick layer. They were giving some light blow to the layer with (probably) a rubber hammer to check if they are still solidly glued to the wall.
