Thank you all for your generous support, comments and clicks on my last upload. Really appreciated it.
This is an image of an acquaintance clocksmith who repairs all matter of clock movements. Sadly his craft is declining due to our throw-away society. Thanks for viewing.

I love this and it works so well in monochrome. I can tell you that the Queen's clockmaker (who I happen to know) looks pretty similar, perhaps there's a mould for them!

Hey, nice shot. It brings to my mind the number of people who mend old cameras. We owe them a lot, don't you think?
