Weekly A-Z Archive: D for Dread

Sightseeing and climbing many ancient ruins in Southeast Asia lead to a very unpleasant discovery about myself: I have acrophobia, fear of heights. It’s not just the niggling worry of getting too close to the ledge. I actually get lightheaded, imbalanced when I peer down.

It seems to be a recent development. A bit of an inconvenience considering how I like to frame Downward pictures because I find them Dramatic. And that I like to rock-climb, hike, ride horses, ski… What a bother, this condition.

    Love that fish-eye shot :-)

    • Fergie, I have another fear. Fear of missing out and fear of regretting. So I try to brush everything side to pursue my curiosity’s desire :)
