Well, Why Not?

Well, Why Not?

A few posts ago I mentioned that I was going to be rappelling off of a twenty story building. Well, I did.

I was a little busy to be taking photos but there were a few people there from work and they were able to get a few. Thanks Chito and Mike. I still wish that I had been able to put together a helmet-cam but it was such a hectic day. Oh well, maybe next time.

It was all for Easter Seals kids and adults with disabilities and apparently over $100,000 was raised during the event so I'm really happy to have participated. Really, my part was easy: just let gravity rule - slowly.

I did take a few shots from the top before I got rigged up, but they were all slide shots and I haven't gotten them developed yet. It was right across the street from the Marine Building and, since I've been on top of that for some photos, it was really neat to see it from the other side. If you do look at that shot of the Marine Building, the building that I rappelled off is visible just to the left of the small peaked roof. The actual balcony is right where the windows start. Looks like I'm starting to get a pretty good collection of shots from the roofs of buildings along Hastings.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun and I'd do it again in a minute. It only took me a minute this time, but you know what I mean.
