I really thought it was only Thursday today. The week just passed by crazy quickly. But as it is Friday already, let’s have a look together what book I read this week.
I got only through two books this week, and both were a bit of a disappointment. Both had some great ideas, but fell short in execution. First I read Redshits by John Scalzi. If you are a Star Trek fan, you already know who the redshits are. The idea to focus a book on these crew members is just great, too bad the author did not know when to stop. The good part is the first half of the book, then it just goes down hill.
The second book I read was the Adventures in Time and Space with Max Merriwell by Pat Murphy. With such a name you would expect some grandiose adventure, but no. It was dragged out and boring. One one should skip. I just finished it out of habit. I like to finish the books I already started.
So not the best reading week, will have to find something better for the next one :)
Green fireworks over Budapest
Yes I love fireworks photos. I would not mind sharing one every day, but the blog would be boring after a while :) This one is another one from the St. Stephen day’s (that I recommend as the best day to visit Budapest) fireworks. Regrettably, I will not be able to go to Budapest this year, so no new ones from that. But I still have many from last years, you have not seen yet, and here is one.
I like when fireworks are of a strong dominant color in a photos, as that pushes the whole photo into that color. And here, the green fireworks just worked so well like that.
This is a single exposure, edited in Lightroom and Photoshop. I blended parts of it, by creating two copies of the same photo, one overexposed, one underexposed.
