Photo Recall

December 25th's #reverb10 prompt: Photo - a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.

Thia prompt reminded me of a number of the great photographs I've come across during my work in the past year. Here are a couple of examples:

The Brutis Office falling through the ice on Lake Huron. Photo is part of the collection held by the Thessalon Union Public Library.

This newspaper clipping is also held by the Thessalon Public Library and shows a local OPP officer baby sitting a cougar.

This final photograph shows Thessalon in its hay day. There are many photographs which highlight the vibrancy of this town during the era which was dominated by lumbering. It's a stark contrast to the quiet small town it has become.
