… of IAG House (29 storeys; there were a number of name changes since its origin as Fay Richwhite Building in 1984/88; NZI House was another name, maybe there are others). Induces neck pain if not vertigo as you watch. The conquest, of course goes downhill, the ascent was no doubt in a fast lift.

  2. Great pics as you’ve captured just how tall that building really is. I sure wouldn’t want that job but I appreciate those that do it.

  5. Good observation of the surroundings and nice shot. It must be a scary job.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
