Nightscapes of New York City and Las Vegas from Above

These photos might remind you of a cross between Tron and Blade Runner. In fact, the science-fiction of yesterday is becoming the reality of today.

Our world is splendid in different ways. For some, technology is eroding the beauty of nature, but for others, our cities are actually being defined by the very technology that was required to build them. And now our city grids are displaying an unprecedented light-show that makes our planet look like a computer chip.

Professional photographer Vincent Laforet has been collecting some really impressive shots that he's had the chance to capture from the air. By using tilt-shift and other special techniques, the results are just mind-blowing. His series explore New York City and Las Vegas as never seen before.

Part I: New York City
