Watch the ground for signs of life
Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Found this while browsing through my pictures of 2010. Wonder how those trees look today...
Is it just me...
... or are my pictures really running out of diversity?(Oh, and by the way: university is over, yay!)
It's been a while since last year...
... but I will return after graduation, I promise....
Autumn in the forest
In God we trust
The church of Alsopahok, Hungary. I am not particularly fond of churches as buildings but this one caught my eye for some reason.
Winter is coming
(too bad that my lens are not good enough to get a clear distance shot out of the camera)
What if God was one of us?
The Silence of the Lambs
Photo taken near the lovely village we are going to move to next year. :)

HUN Engem is elert a hullam, lilluu tagelt, es ez azt jelenti,hogy nehany nem tul erdekes dolgot kell megosztanom magamrol Veletek. Ecce:1.Pentek tizenharmadikan szulettem. Meg jo, hogy nem vagyok babonas. 2.Gyerekkoromban az esetek 90 szazalekaban fiunak neztek. Erre rasegitett, hogy 19 eves koromig rovid volt a hajam, no meg az, hogy rossz gyerek voltam. 3.Szinten korai trauma, hogy sokat csufoltak a meglehetosen kicsi orrom miatt. Azt mondtak, olyan az orrom, mintha babakent anyam arccal a foldre ejtett volna. 4.Harom eves korom ota orvos akarok lenni. 5.1996-1997 kozott Nemetorszagban eltem. 6.Nem kifejezetten szeretem a tzatzikit. A nick onnan jon, hogy kellett egy nem-semleges nev, es mivel a szemem zold, valahogy jott a fura gondolat, hogy legyen zold a nickem is. Igy evek ota minden internetes forumon tzatziki / greentzatziki vagyok. 7.Nem dohanyzom. Nem is probaltam sose, nem is fogom. 8.A kornyezetem szerint neha elviselhetetlen es szarkasztikus vagyok, es ebben sajnos van nemi igazsag. 9.19 eves koromig szemuveges voltam, amikor is alavetettem magam egy lezeres szemmutetnek, ami talan az elmult evek egyik legjobb dontese volt. 10.Eveken at tarto extrem koffeinhasznalat utan 2008-ban teljesen leszoktam a kaverol. Tulhajszolt eletmod mellett is lehet kave es koffein nelkul elni. 11.Hihetetlen mennyisegu folyadekot tudok elfogyasztani naponta. 12.2008-ban 15 kilot adtam le, es nagyon igyekszem nem visszaszedni oket. 13.Ket kedvenc markam a Levi’s es a Citizen. 14.Vallasos vagyok, akkor is, ha neha nem ertek egyet az Egyhaz bizonyos gondolataival. 15.A legtobb targynak korulottem nevet adok. 16.Van egy kutyam, Buksi, aki igazi csaladtagnak szamit.+ megegy (csak mert Vocé megjegyezte): valoban nem irok ekezeteket. :)EN ... by lilluu, and that means, that I have to share some really uninteresting things about me. So here I go:1.I was born on Friday the 13th. Lucky that I’m not superstitious. 2.As a child, everyone thought I was a boy. This was enchanced by the fact that I had short hair until the age of 19, and that I had been a bad kid. 3.It was also an early trauma for me that other kids taunted me because of my short nose. They used to say that it looked like my mum had dropped me face-down when I was a baby. 4.I've been wanting to become a doctor since the age of 3. 5.I lived in Germany between 1996 and 1997. 6.I don’t really like tzatziki. My nick comes from the need of a gender-neutral nickname, and because my eyes are green, I had the weird idea to involve ’green’ into my nickname. Therefore I am called tzatziki / greentzatziki on every message board or communication channel. 7.I am a non-smoker. I've never tried smoking, I never will. 8.According to my surroundings, I can be unbearable and sarcastic, and unfortunately there is some truth in that. 9.I wore glasses until the age of 19, when I decided to undergo a laser eye-surgery, which turned out to be one of the best decisions of the past few years. 10.After years of extreme coffein-consumption I stopped drinking coffee in 2008. You can live without coffe and caffeine even if you are suffering from overwork. 11.I can drink incredible amount of fluid a day. 12.I lost 30 pounds in 2008, and am really trying not to get them back. 13.My two favourite brands are Levi’s and Citizen. 14.I am religious even though I tend to disaggre on some points with the Church. 15.I give names to most of the things surrounding me. 16.I have a dog, Buksi, who counts as a real member of the family.+ another one: like Vocé commented, I really do not write accents above letters when typing in Hungarian, although they have a modification role in my mothertounge.

Street art 2
I know that the edges are awfully cut off, this is due to the lack of wide angle lens and the fact that I could not stand back because of the billion people standing behind me. Shame.
Black lady & greyhound
I think it is about time for me to find my way back to Flickr.Photo taken at CERN ATLAS Control Room, Geneva, Switzerland.
I have abandoned Flickr for almost a month and will not be back until next week. All my private mails will be answered then, please forgive me for my continued abscence.
Imperfect in every aspect
... it so is. I think my stream is going in the wrong direction now that I've started uploading technically horrible pictures. This particular one is perhaps the bottom of all, but I still like it, because it is the tenth shot I made with my first ever DSLR. Yeah, there really is some room for improvement, don't tell me. :)#410
Sea of glitter
Photo taken from the largest hill of the small town of Budaörs, located right next to the Hungarian capital.The many lights of streetlamps appear as vertical lines because I was careless while pushing down the shutter release button. I know I should have used the self timer, and so I did later on, but the result was not this interesting anymore.Been #299 on Explore.
Longing for water
Oh so boring
There was some kid sitting right in front of me on a boat trip the other day, who unknowingly became my model for a few minutes. Actually he was not bored at all but rather entertained by an elderly lady who knew an awful lot about ships, but that is not what his expression reflects, thus the title.Explore #158
No Photoshop was used for the background. ;)

"There was a single blue line of crayon drawn across every wall in the house. What does it mean? I said. A pirate needs the sight of the sea, he said & then he pulled his eye patch down & turned and sailed away."--- many thanks to Orsi for the quote.
Does anyone know why some snails like to glue themselves to vertical surfaces like walls?

Wishing you all the merriest Christmas.Technical remark: result of my first encounter with my recently bought star effect filter. I know since then how to make the rays a bit sharper, and am strongly tempted to use the filter on every single source of light I come across.Afterwork: resize
You might see funny things through your camera if you decide to take a picture with your polarizing filter on. These concentric circles were made by the anti-burglar foil on our windows. The blue on the picture is the endless sky.Afterwork: framing and resizing
The very last one
Looks like the flowers I've just uploaded to Flickr weren't the last ones after all. I have just seen this beauty submerging under the thickening snow in our garden.Afterwork: cropping, framing, noise reduction, resizing
The last flowers?
Seeing that it has just started snowing for the very first time in this year, I decided to upload the last wild flower of 2007 I had come across only a week ago, as a tribute to the summer passed.Update: I've recently discovered that they weren't the last ones after all.

Bred from Hungarian Pulis and German sheperding terriers, Pumis are reconized as an independent breed since the early 20th century. Common and absolutely correct description of the Pumi is "a dog unable to keep quiet" as it is an always cheerful, stubborn, incredibly bright, quick, but still very cuddly kind of dog. Just try to get it stop barking all around, and you'll definitely know what a real mission impossible is.And yes, the one above just happens to be my own.
So good to be together
