Queens, NY (MorichesDaily) — Photographer Stephane Missier, aka Charles le Brigand, captured some pretty amazing images recently while he was in NYC. Missier makes sure his camera is always nearby, because of this he was able to capture pictures of some eerie pyramids while biking on Dec. 30.

Stéphane Missier a.k.a. Charles le Brigand, a photographer working out of Brooklyn, has managed to capture a shot of these eerie-looking pyramids right here in New York City.

The unbelievable pictures were taken while he was crossing a bridge. Missier had been previously documenting the area, which was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. He noticed the eerie pyramids in a parking lot in Queens.

“I knew the city was using the parking lot as a debris transfer site but I wasn’t expecting such an eerie landscape,” he told the Blaze.

As the sight was complemented by generators as well as construction trucks hauling in the debris and other heavy equipment, he was reminded of a lunar scenery.

It looks like the “dark side of the moon, the Sahara desert and the pre-Columbian pyramids,” he describes.

“Also, there were all kinds of construction and hauling trucks on the site as well as generators, watch towers, and pole lights, so I really had the impression of being on another planet — on some kind of spatial station,” he shared with TheBlaze. “The wind was pretty strong too and really accentuated that lunar feel.”
