This gentleman was putting on a blacksmithing exhibition. I found this good angle and started shooting, then somebody backed a shiny blue Honda right in front of those black barrels on the left. I hung around a bit, but I couldn't fins another good shot.

A superb portrait ! Well I always take a first photo quickly as soon as my eye sees something in the case something like that would arrive - and that arrives almost always - and then sometimes we can accept elements in the image, that's life!
