Sandpaper and Sawdust

Much to the significant other’s consternation, I blithely announced I would be accompanying him to work one day this week. As well as the workshops being really interesting, I wanted to try and capture the essence of a artisanal trade: even with an artisan (ha… he hates that) who wasn’t prepared to pose and I had to snap where I could.

It’s not brilliant and I would like to go back and have another go one day – perhaps when I have an independent light source. Meanwhile, here it is:
