For One Word Sunday this week, Debbie’s theme is Vertiginous.

Now, I’m not going to lie. I had to look the word up, which, to me, is actually the opposite of what it means.


  • extremely high or steep.
  • relating to or affected by vertigo.

Can you be affected by vertigo by looking up something steep? I suppose you could, but looking down from such steep heights gives me a quick feeling of ‘ugh’!

Here are two photos from the late 1990s from the side of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. I was leaning on a wall when these photos were taken. The wall provided a certain level of safety, although I did have a fear that I would drop the camera. I suppose that comes with being so high up (and nothing to do with being ever so slightly clumsy and accident prone…!)

Visit Debbie’s site on the link above for more takes on this week’s theme.

    1. I don’t think bungee jumps were around when I was there, VK… not that I’d have done it if they were. I did a similar kind of thing once from a crane on a pier… that was bad enough!
