As part of Photo Cascadia’s ten-year anniversary, we’re reposting some of our favorite blogs from the past. This one is from September of 2011 and it’s short, but I remember it being a difficult blog for me to write.
Last week I was reminded of these words while visiting MOMA in San Francisco. I was watching a short film when the narrator stated, “While everyone is struggling to avoid death, nobody is really alive.” Those words reminded me of what I wrote back in 2011 and also remind me to appreciate those fleeting moments. I hope you enjoy the repost.

As a long-distance hiker, I have sharpened my photographic perspective over the years on the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide, the Canadian Divide and most recently walking across Iceland. My goal is to capture the wonders I see in nature for the enjoyment of all those with an eye for the extraordinary.
