The Blacksmith

I found myself with some time to spend while heading north to the Flinders Ranges I stopped in at Burra and really enjoyed the history in this town. While there I ventured through some of the historical museums and soaked up what it might have been like to live in this day and age. Certainly not easy from what I gathered of the history and hardship endured in this town and of the region. The only thing this image is missing is an old guy whacking on some multen metal, shaping someones tool or a hoof for a horse. Love the texture found throughout this image. From the sand, to the wood, the metals in the tools and the roof and the textured brick walls.
