Lights Edge - Kevin Cooley
The point of these two photos is to lure the viewer into a false sense of security and then shatter it.
The idea being, a laser from space isn’t that scary, it’s like thunder, what are the chances that it’s going to hit you?
But in the next photo we can see that the laser can dodge mountains. That pretty much conclusively means that there is someone much smarter than you up there shooting lasers at people for fun.
