Night Lights #3
Another movie I saw was The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, from the last book in Stieg Larsson's trilogy. I saw the first movie, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo but missed the second one. And, of course, I've read all three books. These movies were made in Sweden and so you have English subtitles. I thought the two movies that I saw were good and kept to the storyline of the books. They felt gritty and raw like the books. I liked them, so of course, the critics panned them. Now Hollywood is going to re-make them. Can Hollywood make them better? Time will tell.
Last night good friends invited us for dinner. They had made a new soup recipe and had bought some tamales from a vendor that they wanted to check out. Simple dinner but we could not have enjoyed it more if it were five-courses. Just goes to remind me that it is the company not the necessarily the food that makes a good evening.
Another Night Lights image at the top. This one is also from the Heights. I'm having a hard time with these images. They look okay in Photoshop or if I view them from one of the Windows image programs but when I add them to Blogspot or Facebook they become darker. They were made in the dark and I want them dark not daylight but I don't want them as dark as Blogspot and Facebook are making them. I'm having to go back and adjust my files. Still they aren't quite right but I hope you enjoy my Night Lights series.
