Day To Night In The World's Most Iconic Cities

We know you love a good time lapse video. But who really has time to watch them all the way through?

Photographer Stephen Wilkes tackled this very conundrum when he set out to photograph the world's most breathtaking cityscapes, showing the view of both day and night in one photo. Wilkes spent roughly 15 hours photographing cities from Shanghai to New York to create one insanely cool photo of each in a series called -- appropriately -- "Day to Night".

Check them out below.
