    vertigo

    "Don't look down" would seem to be good advice. But the effects of vertigo were amplified not when one looked down, but rather when looking toward the horizon. If you think about it...it was only a couple hundred feet to street level, but several thousand feet through open space to the Revenue Building. Three people are standing on the Capitol's marble steps. Shadows below the diagonal parking are from the curbside parking meters.
