Since that first night the sun laid to rest over the horizon behind the Canadian Rocky Mountains and covered itself with a blanket of cloudy cotton candy, I have had a hard time taking my EnChroma glasses off. Everyday now I try to go for a walk in the afternoons and document things I didn’t know were in existence before or I thought were the wrong colour...

These pictures are not my finest work of course, just quick iPhone snaps as I go through my daily life. As a photographer and someone who revels in borrowing moments to turn them into memories, almost as if each day of life is a memoir magazine, the gift of colour is the greatest gift I have ever received.
