Vincent Laforet is no stranger to aerial photography — he has already managed to shoot New York and Las Vegas from a height of 3,200 meters, and now he has decided to replenish his luggage with stunning photos of night San Francisco. But if it was easy to shoot New York and Las Vegas, because these cities have clear borders, then with San Francisco was much more complicated: Lafora had to use the iconic bridges of the city as the main landmark. Nevertheless, the photos turned out to be more than exciting. Judge for yourself!

All photos were taken from a helicopter. For the "Air: San Francisco 7.2K" project, for example, Laforet climbed to an altitude of 7,200 feet (2,194 m) — hence the number in the name. (Vincent Laforet)

As a result, the photos of the California city at night were incredibly beautiful and colorful.

Shooting from a height allows Lafora to explore the unique patterns of each city (almost like fingerprints). "Ironically, you can see from the height how close we are to each other. Being in the sky, you find a new viewing angle for something ordinary. Interestingly, sometimes you can feel more intimacy from a height than from a distance of a few centimeters," says Laforet.

A clear plan and special clarity are needed for the flight, since they flew over airports, among other things.
