"When I returned to Nova Scotia after a 10 year absence, I made up for lost time, and today my personal collection of colour slides of Nova Scotia numbers over 600,000."
Located on Nova Scotia's South Shore, the Town of Lunenburg has been tied to the sea from its early beginnings in the mid 1700s. For centuries, the town thrived on fishing and shipping. It became known as 'the home of wooden ships and iron men'. Many ships were launched here, none more famous than the fishing schooner Bluenose, a Nova Scotian, and indeed, Canadian icon. The shipwrights who built and maintained the vast fleet of wooden fishing schooners and coastal trading ships also had a hand in the construction of the town itself.
On Saturday, August 14, I photographed over 1,100 runners of all ages and all shapes and sizes, including my family, as they ran and walked through mud, sand, rock and tidal pools left by the receding Fundy tides on the annual 'Not Since Moses' race.
