Provocative Images of Cities Without People

The Daily Mail shares the wonderfully scary work of Paris-based artists Lucie and Simon, who have created "Silent World," a series of enchanting but disturbing images of the world's major cities, bereft of people.

According the article, Lucie and Simon, who have been working together since 2005, focus on "blurring the line between reality and fantasy in their work."

As for the technical processes by which the stunning images were created, "the team used a neutral density filter on their pictures to create scenes right out of the Will Smith film I Am Legend or zombie saga The Walking Dead," which the article claims is the same technology used by NASA while studying the stars.
