Nova Scotia, Lunenburg Photos & Travel Photography Workshops Summer 2015

This blog entry will be dedicated to my travels to the lovely town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in the neighbor to our North, Canada. 

I've just returned from a rejuvenating vacation and photo excursion to the Unesco World Heritage town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada. I was hosted on this trip by Dr Will Brooks www.brooksofcanada.ca and his lovely wife Cheryl Lamerson and their wonderful four legged companion Sasha, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever.

I was truly taken by surprise by the beauty of the landscape and architecture but even more pleasantly surprised by the kindness and welcome the people I met during my stay in Lunenburg. Lunenburg is a UNESCO world heritage site “brief historical synopsis” dotted with colorful facades, ramshackle lobstermen sheds and shacks, winding roads and pleasant temps. I instantly fell in love with the people and places in this lovely part of the world, so much so in fact that I've decided to return next year Summer of 2015 to lead photo workshops through Lunenburg and surrounding  areas along with local guide Dr William Brooks. Stay tuned for more details of this exciting new professional venture and in the meantime, enjoy some of the sights of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
