Our guide in Tel Aviv took us to a lovely viewing deck above the city and then we began to look for ways to get onto the roof. Luckily someone had left the door open and we walked right up there. Fifty stories high on a beautiful sunny day. I found it interesting that although we were breaking the same rules as individuals I wasn't as nervous about getting caught since there were more people involved. Logically I understand that the consequences are the same no matter how many people are involved.
When shooting on roof tops we are very conscious of not breaking and entering. All doors were unlocked and accessible. Although it might have not been meant for the public we didn't break any rules getting there (depending on the country, rules will vary). As it turned out, no one saw us or no one cared and we still felt like we were in our own personal spy movie.
Ive never had a fear of heights. I have the natural, healthy, fear though. It still makes my stomach turn when I watch some of Jason's videos like the one below. However, If I have a camera it creates a divide where I am more focused on what I am shooting than how the drop is making me feel. I don't think I could go around with these guys on ledges and just be a spectator. Photography is really essential to me being able to stomach it all.
Looking back on these photos I am aware how I have gotten accustom to posting to instagram. I remember trying to post twice a day was such a challenge but with a few months practice it become easier and easier. Now its like second nature. When I got out and shoot I have my shots for Instagram in mind. As my instagram posting has improved, I feel like my other channels may have suffered, and maybe even my photography. Its a challenge to make a story out of this very adventurous trip but I am missed the images to go with it. Starting the Vlog with Jason in June might have contributed too. I am now shooting video and we are putting together a story through that median as well.
My new challenge is to work on shooting the story and share it here on this vlog with you.
Wish me luck, edi
