Photo Hunt "Metal"

For this week's theme of Photohunt, I have chosen a couple of pictures
I made in the souhks of Morocco.
Do you have any idea where "fer forgé",
wrought iron home decorations and furniture are really made?

How the " artisans" really work?
What their "work studio" or so called "atelier" looks like?

How they are welding and spraypainting baker's racks, coffee tables,
plant holders or candlesticks in a dark badly lit den ...

But what schocked me most was this ten or twelve year old child
hammering on this piece of metal.
And the deafening noise that came with it was almost unbearable.

This is my entry for this week's Photohunt.
