Today we live in a modern world. Everyone gets accustomed with norms and traditions followed that’s prevalent in the society. As time passes new practices emerge and slowly people adapt themselves to it. Earlier we were not aware or rather people were not interested in clicking pictures of their own, but as time progressed people themselves became so obsessed with clicking pictures of their own. That’s how selfie took birth. Nowadays people are very much crazy to take pictures of their own. On the main road, bus, train, rooftop, at home, in schools, colleges, shops etc everywhere people are taking selfies.
We discussed a lot about selfies but overlooked it’s meaning or rather it’s definition. What’s a selfie? Well, it’s nothing but a self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a digital camera or camera phone held in the hand or supported by a selfie stick. Selfies are often shared on social networking such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
Today the topic is about selfies, the perfect fit for profile picture taken by some people who are very much daring and deserves awards for their extreme guts. The sheer daring of these stunts is very much captivating. The brazen adventurer who climbed Christ in Brazil, “ It’s not about funny mug shots with scenic backdrops or daredevil stunts. It’s a way to mark the moment and say, I was here.”
So let’s scroll down and see the “10 most extreme selfies”
Selfie On Top Of The World’s Largest Residential Building In Dubai
The Russian thrill seekers take fun in climbing the globe’s most impressive skyscrapers to take selfies at their very acme. In May 2014, Alexander Remnev and his friends who were members of an adventurous crew called Skywalkers – climbed Dubai’s Princess Tower, the world’s tallest residential building. The building is 1350 feet tall and climbing it requires immense guts and they surely are fans of the most recent Mission Impossible flick.
Selfies On Top Of Christ The Redeemer
Lee Thompson was the man who made it to the top of the statue of Christ in Rio De Janeiro of Brazil while covering the world cup. In a blog post on The Flash Pack, he explained about his experience in taking the unbelievable selfie. “To some, taking pictures of yourself is considered vain, but this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity taught me that the selfie is a powerful medium through which we can share our perspectives, inspirations and personal stories with the world at large. It’s not about funny mug shots with scenic backdrops or daredevil stunts. It’s a way to mark the moment and say, “I was here.” The selfies are perfectly taken and so awesome. Surely the overwhelming number of Instagram likes is probably redeeming, but Thompson would get a special place in the history of his family as a man who captured a special moment in a very special and hard-to-reach place.
Say Cheese While Hanging From Skyscrapers
In the first point, we saw Russians as enthusiasts of taking selfies from highest points. Over here we got more Russians. In this case, Kirill Oreshkin is seen taking the selfie by dangling from a skyscraper. Surely this kid would have one of the most popular Facebook profile pics.
Now, this is insane. Having plunged himself to the earth he found a perfect time to capture the special moment by taking a selfie. This is illustrative of modern tech that can be so effective in self-capturing a memorable moment, especially while skydiving.
High Above Moscow
In point 3 we visualized Kirill’s daring deed. And yet again it’s Krill who stole the limelight. He’s found taking unnecessary risks at the cost of taking selfies. This guy is surely insane.
And More From Way Up There
Guess what it’s Kirill again with yet another amazing selfie. “Skywalking” must be surely in the veins of these Russian youths. Now this time he took a selfie from atop a Moscow State University Tower.
Young Russians Need New Hobbies
It’s Russians all the way. No one could ever match their daring deeds. These youngsters are seen taking selfies while getting themselves in perilous situations. There’s a Russian youth who is self-described “professional” who goes by the name”Mustang Wanted”. Over here Mr. Mustang is seen standing at the very tippy top of a spire. This picture is really dangerous as he seems to be on top of the world. But for Russians, this seems to be a piece of cake.
Highest Selfie Ever
This is the picture of astronaut Steve Robinson who took a selfie as he wafted alongside the Space Shuttle Discovery. This selfie is the proof to say that none has ever been as high while taking a selfie.
This is also one of the extreme selfies ever now this time hanging off the side of a helicopter and this was done by Jokke Sommer over Hawaii.
The Hottest Selfie
All of the selfies are taken by putting lives at risk. Now this one’s too risky to take selfie especially when you need to protect yourself first before doing other things. This person sets fire on self and took the selfie. Really a crazy fellow.
