Central Park’s Strawberry Fields get a literal hue in these insane photos. No, it’s not another secret section of the park that was doused in Pepto-Bismol. These photos were taken on a real camera by 24-year-old photographer Paolo Pettigiani, who used an infrared filter to turn them into an alien world of pink trees and teal skyscrapers. He didn’t choose the colors randomly—they mimic infrared film, which makes infrared light look red. It’s not just the latest filter; it’s actually used to check the health levels of foliage. But we just think it looks like the second coming of Sakura Matsuri cherry blossom festival.
