Who said that you can only upload unaltered photos from your smartphone camera to Instagram? This series of Instagram pictures showing death-defying stunts and other vertigo-inducing scenes were actually cleverly manipulated. Or did you really think there was a rollercoaster hundreds of feet above Manhattan? The images were created by Art Director and Photographer Robert Jahn, who is otherwise known as nois7.

In his Instagram feed, Jahn shows off his photoshopping skills in pictures that combine otherwise harmless urban scenes with actions sports elements that make them look entire unreal. And did we mention vertigo-inducing? There's a biker jumping across a passing commuter train. A skateborder stands at the edge of a skyscraper, ready to jump. At the edge of another skyscraper, a man takes a picture of the view below him.


You can check out more of Jahn's work in his Instagram feed, and on his website.
