Back in March, a group of insane Russian photographers climbed the Great Pyramids of Giza and came away with viewpoints unlike anything you'll ever see. Made even crazier when you realized the wild, palms-sweatingly dangerous pictures were taken while they lied prone on the sides of the pyramids. The stunt was highly illegal, of course, so the Russians had to stay low to not attract unwanted attention from Egyptian guards.
They—they, being Vadim Mahora and Vitali Raskalovym—went back on the climb this summer, touring Europe and climbing prominent national landmarks of the continent, like the cathedral at Cologne, Notre Dame, and Barcelona's sand castle-esque church, the Sagrada Familia.
Is any of this now legal? Nah. Do we admire their яичко? Obviously.
