So this photo, which was taken by Peter Lik in a subterranean cavern in Arizona, recently sold to a private collector for a cool $6.5 mil. Not too shabby for a days work. I guess the private collector, who remained nameless, also bought two other photographs from Peter Lik, one going for $1.1 mil, the other going for $2.4 mil. So I took two things from this story. 1) Whoever this private collector might be is definitely a douche bag. There is absolutely no need to spend that money on a fucking photograph other than to flaunt that you have so much money that you can spend that much on a picture. 2) I need to get into photography, because I’m obviously in the wrong line of work.

Side note: This picture is actually pretty fucking sweet. Not $6.5 mil sweet, but sweet nonetheless.
