When Crime Gets Creative

I’ve been following the Instagram account of @raskalov for a few months now and I have been seriously impressed with the fantastic images from the rooftops of famous cities around the world. Raskalov is part of a group of people known as On the Roofs, who travel around getting photos and videos from super high rooftops around the world.

Of course a lot of these photos could well be obtained through illegal actions – It’s even been mentioned in the some of the captions that the police are out looking for them – but that’s the most interesting thing; just how far will someone go for their creative work?

Similar to graffiti artists, it appears that these guys will trespass anywhere, all in aid of getting an insane perspective of a famous shot. And they really nail it.

Check out the video!

This past week, they released a new video filmed in Hong Kong that really caught my attention. Not only is the activity completely breathtaking at times, but it’s beautifully filmed as well!

Take a look below and enjoy; it’s GoPros and drones galore!
