Garry likes the ledge. I do not like the edge or the ledge. Especially I don’t like Garry being close to the edge of the ledge. Makes me nervous. It does not make him nervous, which is part of the reason it worries me.

I have to be nervous for both of us. Which means I either have to worry twice as hard, or if I’m in a hurry, twice as fast.


But sometimes, I have to approach the edge, if I want to get the picture.

      1. I like the challenge of some photo opportunities. I’m confident of my physical abilities at this stage in life but not over confident or stupid.
        Sometimes getting up from awkward positions makes me question the previous statement.

  1. That is a perfect place for the perfect photos, although I do not think I could manage it and would probably get giddy. That is my biggest regret with my movement problems, but even that can be overcome. I love the angle on the last photo


    1. That picture was the ONLY time I’ve gotten even close to the edge in a long time. I get dizzy when I look over an edge and I always have. But it’s worse now because I’m so clumsy and slow-moving. Garry is much more spry and in far better shape than I am. He was never athletic, per se, but he has always kept himself in great shape and he isn’t afflicted by serious other diseases. Just normal aging, wear & tear.

    1. Actually, that particular one was mine, but Garry’s look almost identical. It’s actually a great place to shoot because you are out over the water … but it really does make my very anxious, all kidding aside. I was once sure-footed, but not any more.

  2. This post reminds me of a famous local photo…

    That’s a photo of a very, VERY brave photographer peering over the top of the Gateway Arch to take a picture. The Arch is 630 feet tall and I hear the winds up there can be a little unpredictable. Not sure if even Garry would be up to that task (I would personally pass out, and hopefully not forward)….
