over the top of vienna

Good Evening/Good Morning,

Last night I explored my first crane…and I can say, this was the most exciting explore ever!

The crane was today, up in the yard of an old trading house.

I knew that in the yard nobody can see you, if you climb on the top of the crane…

But if you stand on the bottom and look up – I can’t explain what I felt in this moment – try it out!


So, I started to climb to the top, every noise in the yard I heard shocked me – so I needed 15 minutes to climb the top. My heart bumped so loud and fast when I got stand up on the rowlock – the view was so amazing. I took a lot of pictures and spent over 30 minutes on the crane…

The descent was fast, back on the bottom I saw a sign with the stats of the crane – over 200 feets (70m) high…

In the next days i´ll upload all the pictures on flickr, here are the first ones:

These are not very good. Too dark, bad framing and focus :-\

I was actually surprised how easy it was to gain access to the roof of the Marriot Hotel, and that we weren’t questioned on our way through the lobby, we weren’t exactly dressed to kill. But we made it in and out.Downtown Louisville, KY.Pentax 645 – SM…
