The Flying Skirt

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Having a phobia of heights, I didn't climb up the steps to the top of the tower. And knowing very well that some have actually fallen to their death attempting the climb, brought shivers down my spine. Call me a chicken or a scardy way. I decided to take a stroll down the tower area witnessing the four stairways of the tower. By the way there is only one part of the stairways which has railings installed and that's because a tourist fell to his/her death! I sat at the corner observing the tourists climbing the steps. Some with confidence while others with anticipated look on their faces. This particular lady wore a long skirt. It's a pity the wind didn't blow hard enough...but enough for her skirt to `fly', just right for a teasing shot. So beware ladies not to wear skirts when you climb up any stairways....there are always other people watching you. Pity it wasn't a mini skirt or did I manage to capture a shot?.
For another shot, click here (scrutinise at the top of the picture and you will know what I mean).

You need a longer zoom!

Very essential ideas you have for flying skirts... One might also consider strong air fan venting air towards the top as people climbing, and shutting down as they descent ?!
