T. J. Eckleburg

"But above the gray land and the spasms of bleak dust which drift endlessly over it, you perceive, after a moment, the eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg. The eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic—their irises are one yard high. They look out of no face, but, instead, from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles which pass over a nonexistent nose."

The Great Gatsby (chapter 2) by F. Scott Fitzgerald

It really happened by accident. I wasn't even aware of the billboard when I took it. I was half focusing on driving, half focusing on the sky.
