Workin hard to get the shot

Looks like our cameraman had to work pretty hard to wedge that camera into the only available spot for the shot. I wonder if he couldn't or wouldn't get out onto that section of roof at lower right. Anybody who has tried to photograph high rise architecture knows it ain't easy a lot of the time.

And my goodness is there anything more handsome than neo Gothic masonry rendered in shades of gray?
