Silhouettes in a Giant Moonrise, Captured Using a 1200mm Lens via Peta Pixel
Earlier this week, photographer Philipp Schmidli of Lucerne, Switzerland captured this incredible photograph of a biker’s silhouette in front of a giant moon rising in the horizon.
Schmidli says he has been trying to capture this photograph for four months now, but complications got in the way of previous attempts. Clouds got in the way of the full moon in January, and bad weather interfered with his attempts in February and March as well.

Paying For It by Chester Brown
I think this book changed how I feel about romantic relationships. (And I have yet to delete my online dating profile, dammit!) Giving up on romance all together is an unthinkable, alien concept for 99% of humans, but Brown does it without flinching.
