what starts as a video of a few friends casually snacking on a banana quickly turns into a stomach-turning selfie, snapped atop a hong kong skyscraper. photographers daniel lau, andrew tso and A.S. have climbed a towering 346m (1135 feet) above the bustling city streets, precariously perching above the metropolis on a building’s spire. with a wide-angle camera lens mounted on a stick, the trio have captured a dizzying and preciously unseen vantage point of the urban panorama. watch the knee-weakening video of the daredevil teens take on hong kong’s architecture below.
