Why Getting High Can Be So Rewarding

Sometimes, in order to score, you gotta ask with a smile. Trust me, it works.

No matter where I travel, I often find myself trying to get as high possible. I sneak up stairwells, set off alarms, and charm security guards into granting me access to the tops of buildings for a quick shot. It always pays off. 

There’s something about being on top of a building, especially in a city, that’s therapeutic and powerful. Not only are you up there alone with your thoughts, but the geographic perspective allows a quiet moment of reflection on the uniqueness of that place and its inhabitants.

Taken in from above, perched among the steeples and the scrapers, the view becomes a high in and of itself.
