Island Life

by Michael Van der Tol

{Departure Bay, Vancouver Island, BC}

I go through phases with my photography

and rather then try to control or stiffle the natural flow,  

I just try to go with it.

{Tonquin Island, BC}

After all photography was never meant to be work;

there’s already enough of that.

{Ganges Harbour, Salt Spring Island, BC}

I don`t think I`ve picked up my DSLR

in a month to capture a moment.

{Horseshoe Bay, BC}

Instead I count on my iPhone to stop time

as I travel about this wonderful part of the world

that I call home.
