Mr. Schmidt

Today I took some photos of the local blacksmith. He was trained by his father, according to the German tradition, he said, that you don’t just let your kids sit around. He underwent eight more years of schooling afterward to become a master of his trade.

It was snowing outside as I left, and drove home on the pock-marked mud roads bordering the lake.
