Is a good photo opportunity worth your life? (horror story inside)
Aug 18, 2014

Less than two weeks ago, a polish couple resident in Portugal decided to cross the safety barriers at Cabo da Roca probably because they felt the draw of a good photo opportunity.
The opportunity never came as they fell 140m to their deaths.
Their children of 5 and 6 were in front of them taking the photo.

Hardly one week later, and this is how people are dealing with it:
and I just can't stop wondering how long will it take until it happens again...

Be safe people.
Photo opportunities only come to those who are still here to take them.
