Do Look Down: Crane operator snaps breathtaking photos from 2,000 feet (GALLERY)
| February 17, 2014 |
Crane operator Wei Gensheng had simply taken up photography as a hobby. And now, after beautifully capturing the amazing sights high above Shanghai, China that his main job treated him to each and every day, he’s an award-winning photographer.
Wei is a crane operator and part of the crew building the Shanghai Tower. When completed later this year, the tower will consist of 121 stories and stand at 2,073 feet. It will be the second-tallest building in the world, second to Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, and nearly 300 feet taller than New York City’s World Trade Center One.
For the stunning photographs, Wei won second place in the Shanghai City Photography Competition. Don’t miss the gallery below.
