I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

aMAZEme is a book maze set up especially for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Its design was conceptualized by Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo. The maze recreates the fingerprint of writer Jorge Luis Borges. It took over fifty volunteers five days and nights to set up this incredible maze which stands up to 2.5 meters high and spans 500 square metres. The 250,000 books they used were borrowed from Oxfam and will be returned after the exhibit.
