Adventure means different things to different people. For some it's a way of life, and for others a route to break the monotony of daily life. Either way, individuals in the photos below take the phrase "cheating death" to an unimaginable level.
Ever imagined that the lights installed on a giant Ferris wheel could be the handiwork of a worker who walked along the spokes without any safety gear to light it up or that the spotless view from your office window is courtesy a couple of risk-taking cleaners, rappelling the length of a building?
There are numerous people who put their lives on the edge to get their job done. However, there is also a section that's more than willing to cheat death by jumping from great heights and such.
A couple of years ago, an amateur climber took wedding photos with his wife while hanging off a cliff. A group of chefs, who were seated for their dinner together, were lifted to a considerable height by a crane in front of Cinquantenaire park in Brussels, Belgium. A tightrope walker walked the high wire over the Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls, Canada.
Clearly, some things in the world are meant only for the brave-hearted.
