The camera is my tool. Through it I give reason to everything around me.

RUINS, COBALT, ONTARIO
This week I will post some images from the small town of Cobalt. In the early twenteith century this place was a booming mining town with about 200 large and small silver mines. All that is left are the ruins of the smelters and mines and of course abandoned equipment. Its sad but it also reminds us as photographers where our basic resource, silver, came from and what is left behind.
