Yeah… it’s pretty scary. So are heights.
What’s even crazier… lying on the ground… no way of falling; but looking up at this terrifyingly high building (Erastus Corning Tower – Albany, NY – Empire State Plaza), I had a horrible sensation of vertigo and that the building itself was going to fall down upon me.
Side note: Yes… I often lay, crawl, squeeze, compress, and dangle myself to get whatever shot my eye is forcing me to.
My fear of heights has taken on a whole new level of scary as a result.
At 589 feet (180 m) and 44 stories in height, it is the tallest skyscraper in the state of New York outside of the city of New York.
Get my drift?!
