Speaking of vertigo...

Peter B. Kaplan is a New York Photographer who made his name by climbing to high locations and taking amazing super-wide angle shots since the 70's -- most notably, the Statue of Liberty restoration project. He recently had to stop after 40 years because he started suffering from vertigo. After laying off ginkgo biloba, Kaplan’s vertigo and fear of heights has apparently disappeared.

Ginkgo messes me up too.

Great photos, although some of them horrify me and trigger my own acrophobia.

Good post, Dave Faris - thanks!
