Russians Risk Jail Time Climbing Pyramids for Pics

Pyramids- 1

What we’ve been seeing lately is that some people will go to great lengths, risking jail time and their lives to get the perfect picture. Last week we introduced you to Vitaly Skywalker who hangs by one arm off of skyscrapers, before that was the self-portraits of Ahn Juhn dangerously close to the edge of tall buildings, and now a team of Russian tourists have broken the law, climbing the Great Pyramids to bring us this collection of images. To get these risky shots, the photographers waited hours after closing time to escape the guards, knowing that getting caught could be punishable by up to three years in prison.


Although there is a reason for the rules, to preserve these national treasures, it’s pretty cool to see the pyramids from this perspective. But now that the novelty is over, let’s hope this doesn’t inspire copycats because security has most likely gone up since the release of these pictures.
