Sin City

I have to admit that I was dazzled by my first view of Las Vegas from a plane, but photographer Vincent Laforet’s images of Sin City from 10,000 feet at night are truly breathtaking . Taken while literally hanging out of the side of a helicopter, the brilliant photos may challenge your preconceptions about Vegas.

The increasing use of LED lighting on casinos, hotels, restaurants and shops, along with the old school neon signage create surreal landscapes that look more like a sci-fi film or a video game.
