Bungee Jumping with the NX300

Bungee Jumping with the NX300

Sometimes you need a little faith to dive into an event. For this day’s activity, I dearly needed to trust that I was making a good decision—especially when a skinny elastic cord was all I had to pull my life back from the edge. I took the elevator up to the cerulean platform. While taking shaky steps along the echoey metal plank, I managed to get a few aerial images…
