It was more than three years ago when I started blogging and my very first post was a photo of a man doing bungee jumping. I thought it would be appropriate to post additional photos of it since it’s high time for doing such a jump. Adventurous and hobbyists must be making most of the short summer going bungee jumping but for me who’s a hobbyist but not into this kind of adventure would enjoy to be on the ground and watch the jumpers hang upside down.
It’s been long since the last time I saw bungee (bungy) jumping here though I know this is a popular hobby in the summertime. This gantry crane on Eriksberg in Gothenburg has bungee jumping in the summer. It’s somewhere here the Swedish Ship Götheborg was built. A walk at the harbour is popular all year round to catch a sea breeze while watching ships and yachts pass by. It was astonishing to see bungee jumpers hang upside down in a flash with those yachts on the water. It would not be a good sight to see one hit the head on the yachts. I can’t imagine more worse than this.
This week’s theme – Hanging
I have watched them from the top and from the ground…can’t get into it!!

Nice take on the theme. Bubgee jumping is better watched than done I think. but then I am a coward!

i don’t have the guts to jump off from the top. it seems like committing suicide. I’m not a risk taker by nature so there’s no way I would put myself through this terrifying ordeal. 🙂
I wish no accident to happen ever.

After I watched (on tv) somebody bungee jumping and accidentally the rope or cord broke I have doubt if I will try it hehehe! Great shot!

i’ve been wanting to try bungee jumping. i tried zip lining and it’s exhilarating–i’m sure bungee jump has the same high.:p
great find for the theme.
I actually don’t have the courage to have bungee jumping. I’m afraid of heights! Nice photos of it though. 🙂
Trying bungee jumping is the least I can think of. Juskoday, baka himatayin ako sa nerbyos hehe.
This is something that i would love to do if i have the opportunity… i cant imagine the adrenaline rush!
Wow, bungee jumping is very exceting! I love this special gantry crane! It makes me relaxed so much! Just like a roller coaster.
