Keith on top of the world
Stops along the BC-5 Hi-way
Four years ago I started my blog and began to work at the art of photography. I never dreamt I would become so passionate about it. I never dreamt this art could take me around the world or be the catalyst to new friendships. More than that photography has fostered a sense of adventure and wonder that I doubt could have ever surfaced had it not become one of my foremost pursuits. It awakened a desire for me to see and collect light from every corner of my life. It changed how I see everything.
It seems to me that I have become more connected with the permanent things in this life: a bible, a rugged path, a mountain top, folk music and strong words. And though photographs in the grand scheme of things are temporary, they bring a permanence to moments otherwise lost in a cloud of memory. These images serve as anchors, pillars for my story, and they can bring me back to the times that mean the most to me in an instant. They become like forceps, delicately pulling every memory, every detail into the front of my mind, so I can recall them precisely as I should.

My beautiful and talented girlfriend. We went out to Lion’s Bay to catch the setting sun and watch the stars come out.
My cousin Anna took me on a quick tour of the Sea to Sky hi way a couple days ago. It runs north-west of Vancouver, hugging the coast line. If you’re lucky enough to catch it on a clear day, as we were, you’re able to glimpse lofty mountain peaks on the north side of the wall and the glassy stillness of ocean water trapped in Lion’s Bay southward.
Anna was incredibly resourceful, pointing out every tiny point of interest, even calling out birds and plants by name. I never really grew up being close to my cousins, but it’s interesting how we’ve all developed similar interests and passions. Anna roams this paradise every weekend and I’m anxious to join her in the weeks to come.
Had a lovely time hiking with my amazing cousin @arighetti in the Squamish area!
