Who needs Blade Runner? Vincent LaForet's Gotham 7.5K presents New York City at night as photographed from a helicopter flying at its 7500 feet (about 2300 meters) ceiling. Vincent’s description of the flight is worth reading; as someone made very uncomfortable by heights I can’t but describe these photos as brave.

I find it also interesting that my first reaction to some of the photos was to think they were screenshots of some Sim City game: on one hand the photos are incredibly sharp but at the height they were taken most street-level detail is gone and the buildings are far away from the camera to resemble some kind of axonometric projection. Then there is the way some parts of the city are dominated by blue or purple hues, opposing the more mundane orange and yellow streets: probably an artifact of color balance, but one that gives off a decidedly cool sci-fi vibe. As tungsten and sodium are on their way out, though, this present vibe is probably something to cherish.  DesignerNews

Toiletwolf (huh?) is right now one of my favourite photography weblogs. I’ve always been partial to austere planimetric (that is, ‘elevation’) photography, and I’m really enjoying the author’s use of longer lenses and croppings in the compositions.
