It’s a “thrill-seeking photography craze” as described by the Mail Online. This craze is called rooftopping and you’ll be relieved to know that it’s not just another word for planking that just so happens to be done on rooftops.
Rooftopping has photographers around the world taking photos from the dizzying heights of tall buildings any skyscrapers. The more daring photos usually show the feet of the photographer as they dangle precariously from the edge of the building. Have a look at some vertigo-inducing rooftopping photos after the jump.
