A Merry Time in the Maritimes

Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island.  The names evoke places that are familiar but foreign, close but a little hard to get to.  During a three-week visit, we enjoyed the maritime cuisine and photographed mainly rural and maritime landscapes.  Americans seldom give Canada a second thought as if it is some kind of extension of US society, but it is different in many subtle ways.  For example, outside of the big cities, signs of sprawling development and hyper-commercialism are rare.  These photos offer a glimpse of life in an environment that can sometimes be reminiscent of a simpler time.
