Thumbs up Some daring photography!

There is no way I would be doing this at all, but it looks cool anyhow.
EDIT: Replaced page for the story. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...-FEET-air.html
Here's one of the photos on that page.

A great place to be using M4/3's gear?

As if the thrill of marrying the one you love is not enough, but have you noticed that the bride is closer to the edge, would'nt take much of a shove if he felt he'd made a mistake.

Well they call it getting hitched. That's probably a few hitches, the odd bowline and a few figures of 8
