Don't complain, I like the title. And I've always viewed Skyscrapers as metal mosters. Not really in a negative sense though. This is one of many shots that I'm scanning in from my trip to NY. The model is Scarlett, she's a NY native. Image is clean scan. Oh and btw, the other side of the edge is a 24 story drop. My husband who was with us had to leave, he couldn't watch her get up there like this without support. Myself... just prayed a good gust of wind didn't come along and happy as a little lark that she was brave enough to perch up on the ledge.

This has been one of my favorite wallpapers for years, but could never remember where I found it.

As I was resizing it to fit on my iPhone I decided it was time to try and track it down.

I keep going back looking at this photoshoot, and I'm amazed each time- once from your idea, second from Scarlett brave and third just from Scarlett, she is so unique-and I don't think I'v seen any thing like her before, posses from another sphere.

all of your stuf is so sweet, this pic and a few others of yours are up on my wall, i dident relaize untill now that they were from the same person.
williambriceking Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2007
this is my first coment. I'm very impressed, I think a lot of people go for a depressed setting with black and white, or a dramatic... this is another perspective, fun. Great all around, and a very stunning model.

keep up the good work,

This is stunning, i love this, i saw it on flickr but by someone else (they did say it was not theirs though!)

Had to search for it here to find it, and i love it!

When is it going on ebay?
glatisaunt Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2006  Hobbyist Photographer
:+fav: for the courage of the model, and her flexibility... but of course also for you! I love this shot, how you put it down... whit a nice study of the position of your model and of the landscape.. the river just go so well whit the position of her right leg... the small building on the left and the big building of the right give a parallelisme of model and background (you make it by study.. or just a case?) anyway great shot!!!
