It was my second work adventure to Hong Kong this in the summer of 2006. On my last day in the heart of the Island, I had to get up to the roof of the 60 story building where I was working, and take pictures at sunset.

I lured my acrophobic boss up to the roof with me, who watched in terror, witnessing my energetic shift from the safe vantage point along the railing, to the exposed perch that I knew would give me the most direct view down.

Laying flat, with my legs twined around a pole for balance, I stretched as far over the edge as possible for a unique view of Wan Chai District below.
