Today in photos

May 14, 2014

According to a new photo making its way around Twitter via Laila Lalami, Ray Bradbury predicted the rise of explainer sites in 'Fahrenheit 451.'  Maud Newton at the New York Times urged: “You're all following LL, yes?”

From AFP’s brilliant photo department, we have this amazing image of a balloon flying past Pope Francis during his general audience at the Vatican this morning. Siobhan Heanue at Australian Broadcasting Corporation News pointed out “It all comes down to timing.” Danny Kemp with AFP just tweeted: “Pop(e)!”

And thanks to Zack Snyder and his Leica, we have the first image of Ben Affleck as Batman.
