This Russian Girl Takes The Riskiest Selfies Ever (Don’t Try This Yourself)

Meet Angela Nikolau – a Russian self-taught photographer who takes the most dangerous selfies ever.

Angela is always looking for new challenges and adventures, and while she’s at it – she doesn’t forget to take a selfie (or ask someone to photograph her). From standing on the edge of a skyscraper to laying down on the edge of a high-rise building’s rooftop – all of her pictures are both beautiful and cringe-worthy at the same time. You can follow her adventures on Instagram.

WARNING: Don’t try this yourself if you’re not an experienced climber, it is extremely dangerous.

That's in Russia a popular extreme sport for adrenaline junkies. I watched a documentary about it. And these are not necessarily professional climbers, but thrill seekers, who try to outdo each other in their quest to get to the highest and most dangerous spots. Without any secure ropes or any safety measures. And also they are not authorised to climb the buildings or bridges. So it a good bunch of cases it is illegal. In German media this sport is called "Roofing" and several "Roofers" have already fallen to their deaths. The photos may be impressive, but I still find them questionable, because I find the price to pay for this sort of attention gathering and adrenaline kick very questionable.

I can't even figure out how someone would even begin to climb up some of these things!

I'm sorry to be a bit of a nitpicker, but the majority of these aren't selfies.
