Blacksmith Works

Man hammering

The blacksmith had a hammer in his hand

Shot in the city of Kolkata, India.

The shoeless man was crouching in his studio. He was a blacksmith and just hitting with a hammer in his hand. Beside him, a heap of coal was seen. He seemed to use the coal to heat up in round-robin style.

He kept hitting and the sound of his hammer echoed religiously in the lane while I watched him working. Apparently, he was making a knife or a saw. Some pieces which he had finished were put on the ground in front of him.
