A 25-year-old photographer and war Army veteran Isaac Wright was arrested for taking rooftop photos. He was charged with “burglary and possessing criminal tools” after trespassing and climbing the rooftop of the Great American Tower in Cincinnati.
His latest endeavor involves two of the tallest buildings in Dubai, 101 flights of stairs and couraging 60 degrees centigrade during the climb. The photos are better than any drone can take. We asked Wee Loong a few questions.
I am not even sure how to tag this one. 26 years old Daredevil Keow Wee Loong snuck into the yet-to-be-finished Ping An International Finance Centre in Shenzhen, China. When it is complete, it will be the tallest building in China, and second tallest in the world at 660 meters. For now it is “just” a 660 meters tallest under-construction site in China. If you are thinking of pulling a similar stunt, know that it is not easy (and may not be legal):
For a long time now, we’ve seen a rising culture of dare-devils taking selfies on skyscrapers, or documenting themselves doing dangerous stunts just so they can get those on youtube and enjoy their 15 seconds of fame. But for me, this guy is totally going over the limit.
Youtuber Alexandr Chernikov got on a 10-stories building (roughly 30 meters) only to set himself on fire and jump down to a pile of snow, documenting the entire experience with a GoPro. While one of the watcher documented the thing from the ground, there is also the first person view from the said GoPro on this link.
Malaysia based photographer and daredevil Keow Wee Loong is known for taking selfies in dangerous locations (just check his profile a few words back), but this one must have been the biggest adventure of them all.
Keow Wee Loong snuck his way into the pit of Kawah Gunung Ijen an active volcano in Indonesia to take a most daring selfie against a volcano shooting a blue flame.
