Just Tinkering

I didn't know that a "Tinker" was a common word for a tinsmith, prior to visiting the tinsmith shop. A very important job back in the day, but certainly not very prominent now.

The shop was filled with also sort of gadgets for rolling and shaping metal. It looks like fun, but nonetheless an art that would take years to learn.

Lots of visual lines created by the objects in the image. They help draw the viewers eye into the image.
