Max is a semi-retired 60+ boomer science guy, currently living in Ottawa, Canada’s capital. Growing up with photography and art in his family, he was self-taught ever since he developed his own films at the age of 13. “I do it for the sheer joy of creating an image regardless of whether it pleases, stuns or provokes”, he says. He likes to experiment and is currently exploring pinhole, Infra-red, panoramic, and high dynamic range photography.

    ooh! Library … big, scary, pointy library! The sort of books that must have! mmmm

    I am not being a jerk, by the way: I meant every word. I love a good library. This one, however, looks more than a little naughty, and I love it, as well.
