Don't try this at home!

On a recent visit to Hoi An in central Vietnam I happened upon an enterprising young Vietnamese wedding photographer who had decided to take "point of view" FAR too seriously. I spotted him balancing precariously on the edge of a rooftop, 20 feet off the ground, in order to photograph the happy couple canoodling in the alley below. His only safety gear was the pair of flip flops on his feet! 

Having broken my ankle in Bangkok late last year making a very forgettable photograph of a street scene, and spending the next two months poking a chopstick down my cast to scratch my leg I figure this one to be not worth the risk. Safety first!
