‘Selfie Stick’ Takes Rooftopping Self-Portraits to the Next Level of Crazy


Now there’s a selfie you don’t see every day. Rooftopping photographers Andrew Tso and Daniel Lau recently climbed to the very top of The Center, the fifth tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong. While at the top, Lau pulled out his “selfie stick” (AKA a retractable handheld monopod) and captured the crazy shot above.

Here’s the vertigo-inducing video he recorded:

Now someone just needs to do this at the top of the Burj Khalifa to take the crown of “Mother of All Selfies” away from photographer Joe McNally.

    All these “top of building” videos make me want to barf. I have no problems being on top of a mountain… but the pinnacle of a bloody building?… it’s too weird for my stomach, LOL.

    Joe McNally talked about using a system like this on his Empire State Building shot from a few years ago. I don’t know if he ever used in though…

    I know the go pro he’s using really skewers the viewer’s “view” of what he’s seeing. So … it probably (to some degree) looks more dramatic than it actually is. But it’s still gives me vertigo sitting here at my desk at ground level. I do worry about the risks these kids are taking … and who they might actually fall on if that were to ever happen. Hopefully it won’t …
