HARMLESS OR HARMFUL ADVENTURE?
Most travellers go to Rio to stand below this landmark STATUE and take photos.
Did this guy want to get better photos from this height?
Is this adventure or simply stupidity? I know there is often a fine line here between the two.
I realise that this is an obsession for BASE jumpers...those people who want to parachute off every structure natural and built....
I am not sure that it is a digitally altered picture because I don't remember reading anything about this. I reserve judgment on the person's motivation to do this, in the absence of further info.
On face value, I find it a little difficult to accept and was not sure whether to promote it even here.
Giving the benefit of the doubt, I would hope it has a genuine motivation and does not impinge on the rights and offend the sensitivities of Brazilians who respect this iconic structure.
