Oh Dear!

I know quite a few people who might have an Oh Dear moment at being up this high...

Top of the Rock

luckily, I am not one of them. Top of the Rock, New York City, October 2010.


I'm with you... not an oh dear moment for me, but I can see where it would be for others!
I showed the shots from this trip to a friend of ours and I thought he might have a panic attack just looking at the pictures...
It was a lovely day.
Great shot - and easily an "oh dear" moment for many!

Tiny bit more than an Oh Dear for me... But I see what you mean!
I kind of figured it would not be your cup of tea.:-)
More of an "Oh S***!!" moment for me. There is absolutely no way I could have taken that picture.
It is funny, I have climbed/rode elevators pretty high before, looking down does not bother me, but I got a little vertigo (on this same trip) being at the top of the Empire State Building and looking UP at its radio tower.
Oh dear! You'd have trouble getting me up there...
I love being up high. The only time I was ever really bothered was on a high water slide once and then I child went down in front of me and my ego would not let me climb back down, so I sucked it up and went down the slide.
I would NOT be happy up there. *hangs on*
In my trips and climbs in Europe, I invariably see someone do just that: hang on for dear life. When we climbed to the top of St. Peter's in Rome, I felt so sorry for a couple of people, who were just scared to death and were clinging to the walls.
It's where my son proposed to our darling DIL. I don't have a fear of heights. I don't even have a fear of falling--I think that would be exhilarating. It's a fear of splatting.
I have always wanted to sky dive and/or bungy jump, but I battle motion sickness and have worried both would be miserable.
It was making me feel a bit 'see sick'. I've had a history of falls as I have grown older, so I try to avoid situations which might lead to one.
I can definitely understand that. I am terrible clumsy; always have been, so I look at my feet while going up stairs, etc.
