    Hmmmm, I sure had a hard time to figure where to post these images, I guess this is the place, I was driving Hiway 49 in California and came across this small town (Coloma, Ca) and went on a walk a bout, In my travels I came across this small Blacksmiths shop, I believe the guy said it was built in 1905, It was early and they were just getting everything fired up, The town is an old gold town, Well anyway I took a few images, Keep in mind there was no power in the building and it was very dark inside, These images were taken hand held with my D200 and Nikon 17-55 2.8 and most were iso 800.

    Thanks, I had to ask about the chain on the vice, What the chain does is keep the vice lined up, there is a threaded bar in the top and the bottom and the chain keeps them the same...lol

    I love the clarity of each of them. It almost makes you feel like if you reach out you can touch each of the tools!
