    How old are these fotos? 5 o 6 years old? Lots of recently constructed buildings are not there yet, if we don´t even mention the reconstruction of the old soviet blocks of flats, thats going on recently

    FYI crane operators are not steeplejacks. Still a fine job, unless they collapse and you die haha!

    I am very scared of heights, but this was very interesting. There’s one post on ER where a guy was sitting on the edge of this really tall structure, and he took a picture of his legs dangling down… just seeing that gave me vertigo.
