A Potter's Tools

This gentleman's shop is directly next door to Cleopatra Hill, and his studio and clay-throwing wheel is open off his shop -- the side yard is fenced but you can look through and see his kiln (which on Sunday was open and full of newly fired pottery). Through the window, I could see his tools tucked into mugs of his own making, or laying out along the sill. I was completely prepared to ask if I could come IN and shoot that mouth-watering picture, but the fella put a 'be right back' sign in his window and disappeared up the hill. I waited, waited s'more, waited still, and finally took the shot through the window. When I got back to his store later, he was there, but I was out of film by then (aaarggghhhhh!!!!)
