14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Blacksmith

He was doing metal for over 40 years. He even lost a finger to it. Sadly, now mostly as a hobby. Not many orders that worth mentioning, required his skills. Plus it was cheaper to order what you need from big stores, rather then hiring him. So to keep doing what he loves, he would work on the weekends at Cades Cove in Tennessee, enjoying the company of kids and grown ups, answering a 1000 questions a day!!
