Oh my. I want to jump through my computer and pull him away from the edge. I have vertigo via photo.

@JJ Keith His teacher almost had a heart attack when he told her that he jumped up and down on the glass floor of the CN Tower.

Great photo - amazing view! There is glass between him and the drop I take it?

Obviously he is not afraid of height. :)

@Cassie: It was taken on top of the CN Tower in Toronto.

@Emma: Absolutely....I'm not crazy! :)

Cool! yes, it was me who doubted the view could have been that clear given the day we were having. Glad you got to see far and wide! COOL shot of him!! What a sweet guy!

The picture scares me too. I don't have a fear of heights myself but when my kids are near a railing makes me nervous.

May 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

very cool! I'm so terrified of heights that the one time I did go up the CN tower it had to be at night, in the dark.... I'm pretty sure I couldn't manage it in daylight -- and i'm 100% positive I couldn't have taken this photograph!!

@Annie: Do you have a disclaimer on your Web site that says you don't do shoots on top of the CN tower? ;)

May 21, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterphdinparenting

Well, that is an awesome picture!!!

Great job, but egads! I wouldn't have been able to take that picture, either.

I traveled with a school group quite a bit when I was in high school. One year, we went to Chicago and they made me go up to the observation level of the Sears Tower. I was sick. The following year, we went to Toronto, and they let me hang out on the sidewalk outside of that tower. There was a round flower bed with a little wall around it where I sat until they came back down. I wonder if it still looks the same. :)

Kids are fearless!
I have a similar pic (not as good as yours!) which reminds me of that sense of adventure I love about my girls:

@andrea from the fishbowl - Thanks for sharing that pic! It is similar. Glad to see I'm not the only "crazy" parent.
