On top of the world: Amazing photos of rooftopping in Toronto
Monday 18 November 2013
They call it “rooftopping”. Daring photographers scale the impossible heights of only the tallest skyscrapers to take photographs of the city below.
The movement focuses on scaling those buildings that are off-limits to the public, says photographer Tom Ryaboi.
“The real reason it [the movement] has grown is because it’s captured the minds of young adults who feel like they’ve been cheated out of genuine experiences,” he told HuffPost UK.
“Underneath all the crazy looking photos is a group of men and women who are disenchanted with their social networking, video gaming and over regulated societies. They are treating their urban environment as they should, a place full of wonder and adventure.”
The image was taken from a skyscraper in Toronto.
