"QUANTUM SHOT" #210


Up on the Roof

Start with the closest available roof of a skyscraper... Many wonderful things can be tried (some with success) on top of skyscraper roofs, likely to cure your fear of heights once and for all:

1. Set up a romantic date in the skies!



2. Plan to hang out there with your buddies:







3. Try golfing in unlikely places:

4. Seek out prime spot for a best picture:





5. Get inspired for painting:



6. Learn to adjust the time "at the source":



7. Sign up for a job in construction:

Your dining choices just got better:



"Dinner in the sky" takes place at a table suspended at a height of 50 meters by a team of professionals.

9. Join "steampunks" and meet a very special robot:

PS:
Once your fear of height is taken care of, you can transfer your activities to an airplane wing (note: this picture was taken before the advent of Photoshop)
