reduced head

Model in front of Brancusi’s “Bird in Space” sculpture, MOMA (1939). Photograph by Louise Dahl-Wolfe.

The model wears a Schiaparelli ensemble. In Bird in Space, the sculptor eliminated wings and feathers, elongated the swell of the body, and reduced the head and beak to a slanted oval plane. Balanced on a slender conical footing, the figure’s upward thrust appears unfettered.

Plant of the Day

Friday 10 March 2017

The small, deciduous shrub Hydrangea arborescens ‘Annabelle’ produces wonderful winter seed heads which started as large, spherical groups of white sterile flowers in the summer, so giving three seasons of display. It is time to prune these shrubs removing the old flower heads and reducing the height.

Saturniidae moth’s caterpillar & Saturnia pavonia moth

The family Saturniidae (order Lepidoptera), commonly known as saturniids, include the largest species of moths such as the giant silkmoths, royal moths and emperor moths. These moths are characterized by large size, heavy bodies covered in hair-like scales, lobed wings, reduced mouthparts and small heads, sometimes brightly colored and often with translucent eyespots on their wings. Together with certain Noctuidae (chiefly Calpinae and Catocalinae, such as the genera Ascalapha, Erebus or Thysania), the Saturniidae contain the largest Lepidoptera, and some of the largest insects alive today.

Yeh I made a text post about this before but it’s so much better with pictures. <3

This is Allen’s reaction when he’s trying to snap Lavi out of it:

All sweet and tender and gentle as he can be. So moving, so touching. He’d rather burn than hurt a hair on Lavi’s head. It reduces one to tears, really.

And then, his reaction when he’s trying to snap Kanda out of it:

“WHAT THE HELL, KANDA? I TRUSTED YOU TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. ARE YOU ASKING ME TO BABY YOU? YOU FUCKING IDIOT, I THOUGHT YOU WERE TOUGHER THAN THAT. YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO GET ANGRY, NOT SUFFER A HEROIC BSOD. JFC I CAN’T BELIEVE I HAVE TO SAVE YOU LIKE SOME FAINTING PRINCESS.”

NSFW Eruri Week Day 1: BDSM

I’m two days late and more than a dollar short, but let’s do this anyway!


 "C'mon, E.“ Levi hoisted himself up to sit on the edge of the vanity, legs spread, back arched. Even fully clothed, he looked beautiful. Absolutely irresistible. It had been Hell resisting him all evening, and Erwin was more than ready to give in. "Get your ass over here and fuck me.”

 That tone, though, was unacceptable.

 "You know, that’s funny,“ Erwin said, though there was very little mirth in his voice as he pulled his ivory sweater over his head, reducing down to a white undershirt. It was a strange look on someone as formal as he usually was. "I could have sworn I was the dom here.”

 The ice encasing that smooth voice sent a shiver down Levi’s spine, and he responded, his tone soft and careful: “You are.”

 Erwin’s smile was positively glacial. “Then I’d better not hear you speak to me like that again,” was all he had to say.

 "Understood.“

 "Good.” Erwin was currently pulling his undershirt off, revealing golden skin and the toned muscle just beneath. It took all Levi had to hold himself back. “Now, strip. I want to be able to see everything.”

 And, of course, Levi did as he was told, standing to pull his shirt over his head, rolling his hips forward as he undid the button on his jeans, fully aware of the way greedy blue eyes were following his every move. Those eyes stayed on him, practically devouring his cock when the dark denim slid to pool on the floor. He was already half-hard.

Dean used to hate being ill, but with Cas around it isn’t too bad. After two days of Cas pampering him, he actually wishes to stay ill for a couple of more days. It’s like having your own personal nurse. Cas brings his meals to his bedroom, always with peppermint sweets for his sore throat (Dean has become slightly addicted to those). Cas wrapping a cold, wet towel around his head to reduce his fever is awesome, because while doing so Cas’ hand cups the back of his head, his fingers gently sinking into his hair, and he’s so close Dean could just lean in and kiss him. But he won’t. And he definitely doesn’t think about it every time Cas does that.
