Old Wheelwrights' Town

There's an old part of Eskilstuna in Sweden where they've kept a lot of old smithies and ye olde shoppes. They're called 'Rademacher-smedjorna'. The first part is oldish German for 'wheelwrights', and the second part is Swedish for 'smithies'.

The buildings are all painted red and rather beautiful. Several have been turned into quaint little rustic cafés and restaurants; the rest are hand craft shops.

I usually pick up some kind of coffee mug whenever I visit a new place. I found mine from Eskilstuna here - and got a mighty crack on the head as I exited the craft shop, forgetting how low the door was... I didn't need a bandage afterward; the cut wasn't deep enough, but the headache lasted the rest of the day...

Taken with 'The Monstrosity'; a Lensbaby 3G at f/5.6, with the Lensbaby 0.6x Wide Angle Lens attachment.
Interesting color...I like the scene.

Thank you! :-) Personally, I like the sometimes somber mood the local - unstable - weather gave me.

@bankmann There's nothing like a bit of unstableness for a good shot ;)

this is wonderful and I realise I am very behind because I have had to back track - small houses with big roofs
