Picture's history

A friend of mine got me into climbing high towers a couple of weeks ago.
This tower is about 13 floors high. I climbed it and went down on a rope.
I was pretty much scared but I liked the feeling.
You gotta overcome a couple of steps.
It's quite easy to climb upstairs: there's a ladder safe enough to use.
It's quite easy to get used to the height though the fence was not safe at all and had huge gaps.
It's relatively easy to step behind the fence.
It's really hard to rely on the rope cuz you might easily slide down if you don't control it.
The way you control the rope is strange indeed: I still don't understand how it works. I only know that I have to press my arm with the rope against my hip to slow down or stop.

The guy on top is the friend, below is a friend of his.


I liked the pattern created by the tower framework but I couldn't get it as sharp as Ш wanted while shooting. When back home I played with lightness and contrast (ACDSee shadow/hilight) to make a silhouette.

The exact location of the tower on Wikimapia.

The shapes are very interesting, but the totaly B/W conversion is a bit too effective IMO.
anyway, good composition
