the reserves


2017 03 24, a trip to the lake, part 2 (hermann ottó tó)

(each time i visit my aunt i always pass by this lake system, starting in orfű and ending in kovácsszénája villages, i can never make enough photos no matter what the season is, it is so pretty. this lake is a protected area, a fish and bird reserve named after hungarian zoologist and “father of birds” ottó hermann. the 30 hectare lake is home to rare species like alcedo atthis (kingfisher, jégmadár) and lutra lutra (eurasian otter, európai vidra).)

SOSOSOSOSOSOS guys HELP!!!! Not even joking!

Guys, holyshit it’s my anniversary tomorrow!

My WEDDING anniversary!!! 

Jesus fuck! WTF do I do, I totally forgot! Anybody have any (FAST) gift ideas for a man who likes to climb rocks and buildings, and who designs websites, and who (is God’s greatestcreation) needs absolutely zero things???


This episode for me really highlighted and then in its dramatic finale brought to an extreme the use of perspective that Rebecca Sugar has often talked about during panels. In her rare appearances, we are almost always looking up at Rose Quartz, or she is leaning down and over our POV - be it Pearl kneeling before her hologram in Rose’s Scabbard

or Greg on a number of occasions during the early days of their relationship (We Need To Talk is a really interesting watch with regards to camera angles and how they change - Greg literally climbs a stack of crates during his attempt at communication and, well, seeing eye to eye)

or Garnet after her fateful fall in The Answer

or, hey, Buddy Buddwick collapsed in the desert in Buddy’s Book

She even has magical floating powers. It all fits, of course, with the entire running theme of the (unattainable/unmaintainable) pedestal. And even when she is not directly present, and even when it’s not the focus of the shot, her portrait can be seen overlooking the familiar setting of the beach house.
