Rosetta takes 'selfie' ahead of landing site selection (BBC) has a really gorgeous photo taken from the Rosetta spacecraft, or more specifically the Philae lander on-board Rosetta, with one of Rosetta's 14m solar panels extending before it, and Comet 67P in the background, 50 km away. The article also has a much more detailed photo of the surface of Comet 67P, showing the incredibly rugged terrain on which Philae will try to land; the landing attempt is currently scheduled for November 12th. An illustration showing the configuration of docked Philae, Rosetta, and the solar panels can be seen here.

Ooh and here's a composite photo taken by Rosetta at a distance of 16 miles from the comet, showing jets shooting out of the comet's surface.

Spaghetti again?! I guess it's better than your pork chops.
