Incredible Aerial Photos Make London Look Like A Perfect Miniature City

Vincent Laforet is famous for photographing cityscapes from thousands of feet above the ground, sticking his head out of helicopters to get the perfect shot. Having taken on New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles for his series, "Air," Laforet recently released photos of London taken from 6,000 feet above the city.

In the set of photos, the bustling metropolitan is transformed into a bright collection of what looks like a miniature cityscape. "There is a very special beauty within the mysterious curves of London's streets," Laforet wrote on his website. "And especially so at night." The multi-colored photos show tiny double decker buses, Tower Bridge and Big Ben from rarely-seen angles.
