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

LANG STREET 1911, COBALT, ONTARIO
Last Tuesday, Dan and I visited Cobalt. we took quite a few pictures. It is a very interesting small town with a rich history. In the early 20th century silver was discovered in Cobalt, which created a "silver rush" you can call it. At the height of all this mining activity the town had about 200 active mines. Now it is a very quiet place but you can see the history reflected in a variety of murals, like this image of lang Street in 1911, all across town. its definitely worth a visit.
