Life: Vertigo!

It's time for a photo. Because I haven't been out with my camera this week, I'm pulling a favorite from my Flickr photostream that I haven't featured here before.

I took this while on vacation in Las Vegas in November 2006. It's from the observation deck at the top of the "Eiffel Tower" at the Paris Hotel. I made sure my camera strap was firmly around my wrist, then stuck the camera through a viewing hole in the safety fence, then pointed it straight down.

Does it make you feel a little dizzy? Like the world is spinning?

No? Then check out the larger-size version of it on Flickr by clicking on the photo to follow the link to the photo's Flickr page, then selecting "all sizes". When it's large enough that I can actually see the people on the ground, then I feel it.


  1. Ayeee! How many floors up is that? I took a photo through the glass floor of the CN Tower, and that gives me goosebumps too! :S

  2. That really is a scarey photo. Looks like you are really bent over the railing.

  3. Eek! I feel queasy just looking at the small photo! I'm just going to crawl under my desk for a few minutes until I feel better. :)

  4. LOL. Happy I could give you a thrill -- or a stomach ache. :)

    According to this site, the observation deck is 460 feet up.
