Darth Vader is a busy Sith Lord, but his life isn’t all throttling underlings with the Force and fighting to destroy the Rebel Alliance at any cost. Even Star Wars characters have chores and hobbies and occasionally catch the sniffles. Earlier this year Spanish photographer Jorge Pérez Higuera showed us the daily lives of Imperial Stormtroopers. Now Polish photographer Pawel Kadysz has brought us an awesome ongoing project entitled Daily Life of Darth Vader.

Ostensibly created by the Supreme Commander of the Imperial Fleet himself, who just recently got into photography, once a day Vader shares a photo documenting his everyday life, which isn’t that different from our own. He goes grocery shopping and takes care of his laundry and meals. He cheats a bit when it comes to ironing, but who can blame him? Somehow Vader manages to brush his teeth, drink coffee and eat through his iconic mask, but the mask comes off at bath time, so presumably that’s when he cleans the mask too:

In his downtime he’s something of an outdoorsman:

And one of his favorite hobbies is playing with his remote-controlled TIE Fighter, which is particularly funny when you realize he could simply use the Force to control it instead:

The Daily Life of Darth Vader began in October and Kadysz Vader shares a new photo ever day. You can follow along with is daily happenings via his own personal TookAPic page.

Each of these lush landscapes looks like a photo taken in the vast wilds of Middle-earth, but they’re actually incredibly awesome aquariums. It’s been a year since we first discovered the world of competitive aquarium design, aka aquascaping, and the winners of the 2015 International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest (IAPLC) have just been announced.

Currently a nascent art form (begun in the 90s), aquascaping involves the painstaking arrangement of aquatic plants, rocks, driftwood, and other hardscape elements in massive tanks that take years to prepare. It’s underwater ornamental gardening, sometimes with fish as garden residents.

“The art of aquascaping is still a fledgling endeavor, first started in the 90s by Japanese wildlife photographer Takashi Amano. The annual IAPLC competition has grown dramatically since, with the 2015 contest seeing 2,545 entries from 69 countries. Japan, China, Brazil, and France dominate the top finalist spots (only 13 entries were from the United States).”

Japan’s Takayuki Fukada was the 2015 IAPLC grand prize winner with this beautiful aquarium entitled “Longing”:
