I adore how unique these shots are and how they present the globe with views that they have never had before.

Rui claims that during the past six years, despite the difficult settings he travels to for photography, he has experienced no problems.

Rui continued, “There may be some issues, like homeless individuals residing in these locations and people using these locations for illegal activities, but I am very vigilant and have never had any issues.

My friends have been known to call me crazy on occasion, but when they see the results, they praise me and inquire as to how I discovered these locations.
