Less Bespin and more dystopian LA, these night shots of the fog-shrouded city are even more spectacular than this morning's. I can only imagine what it'd be like to live atop one of these futuristic beasts. Probably pretty incredible! If only it weren't for the hellish heat and oppressive legal system. But at least there aren't replicants running around.

Blade Runner, was as you say dystopian, a failed future. These images are calm and a sign of a more perfect future.
