  1. Mein erster Gedanke war: Hoffentlich hält der Bäcker das Blech in der Balance, ohne das einer dieser appetitlichen Kuchen herunterfällt!
    Ein wunderbares Foto “aus dem richtigen Leben”, authentisch, ungekünstelt und real.
    Ich mag sowas.

  2. Those cakes certainly look delicious. I want one :) Another great shot, Joshi. I like how you managed to capture the worker looking upwards to the side…must be on the lookout for the next batch of cakes ;)

  3. An outstanding photo. Everything from the facial expression to the pastries just looks great. The color tones really give the image a real life feel. Keep up amazing work!

  4. I’m so loving browsing all your lovely photos of everyday things that have passed and reading the stories that accompany them. Thank you for taking the time to share the images and the beautiful stories behind them all. It really IS like we are there with you. It reminds me of Tolkien’s quote “I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keeps the darkness at bay… small acts of kindness and love”.
