Not for a squillion dollars!

Photo taken from what is, so far, the top of the Burj Dubai, the 157th floor.

And there are guys wandering around on the girders! I'd feel sick looking out from the mezzanine floor!

did you take this picture? how on earth did you manage to do that?

The fisheye lens doesn't help, does it? And that sucker must be moving around up there... a few feet of lateral 'give' and you'll be 'blowing up chunks' as the charming Australian expression has it... :)))

seems like he is on a crane

No, I didn't take the photo. Not for anything would I be able to go up there! It was sent to me by a friend in the construction industry.

I also think the photographer is probably in one of the tower cranes.

ahhh i see!..it would be nice to go up there and take an "i've beenthere" kind of picture...but not on the tower crane...maybe on a safe fully slabed floor..:)

Does anyone have any idea what the sink plunger (far right of the photo) is for?

The sink plunger looks as if it is a light fitting, maybe a beacon.
