A Trip To The Baker

Baker D Chirico is one of my favourite places to buy really good artisinal bread.  I stopped by there yesterday to get afternoon tea.  I came home with a little strawberry tart, a bomboloni (italian custard doughnut) and a loaf of seeded bread (confession:  I did scoff down both the sweet treats after photographing them!!)  Here’s a link to some images from Google if you’d like to see more of Baker D Chirico.

The afternoon tea looked (and tasted) delicious, so I thought I’d practice my photography by trying to capture some moodier images of the bread and sweets.  It’s taken me a long time to learn photography and I finally feel like I’m making some ground.

Another place I’ll be practicing capturing moodier images is at my daughters school play which opens tonight (Thursday).  The cast have been rehearsing for about three months and it’s been a fantastic experience for my daughter.  The school she attends excels at the arts in particular drama and have productions scheduled the whole year.

Now back onto the subject of bread..you must pop over to Lauren’s blog Still Plus Life, she has a beautiful post about bread making in her neighbours wood fired oven.  The photos are so good you can almost smell the freshly baked bread!

    Moody photography, eh? Rather lovely:)

    I LOVE the tissue paper the bakery uses, it makes it all look so special and yummy.

    OMG, bomboloni, now there's some memories…. I wonder why, as an adult, I don't like cakes and sweet things? Weird no?

    Good Luck for the play tonight. I look forward to the photographs xx

    Oh Catherine, gorgeous photos! I love the papers they use and I love how you styled them! What a great spot for you!

    You're so sweet to point people my way. I was gone all day yesterday (which is why I'm typing this on a Saturday!), but one of my stops was to Jackie's for our weekly order of bread. We got apple cranberry chunk (and she surprised me with cinnamon raisin
