Viewing the World from Above with @raskalov and @makhorov
Standing on the roofs of buildings that reach higher than 500 meters (1,640 feet) tall would be terrifying for most, but for Russian Instagrammers Vitaliy Raskalov (@raskalov) and Vadim Makhorov (@makhorov) great heights are a daily adventure.
"One day my friends took me on a roof trip," explains Vitaliy. "That was the start of my long journey. It was a hobby at first, but now it has became a kind of work."
Vitaliy and Vadim post photos to Instagram from the top of some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers, including China’s Shanghai Tower and Russia’s Moscow City Tower. This daredevil activity, not to be tried at home, is known as urban exploring.
"I use Instagram because it’s fast and easy to save such beautiful moments—and I enjoy the responses from the community," Vitaliy adds.
