I am confused by the "follow" option on blogger. What does it do?
René Maltête photography. This guy was fabulous, I can't believe I never heard of him.

Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D, wiki article. The movie and the 3D is getting very good reviews. I hope it will work well also on a home screen, because I rarely have the patience these days for movie theatres.
