You can always tell where a bakery is from the wafting scent of freshly baked bread. A Turkish baker let me take pictures of him working in his shop, which was barely larger than the work table that you can see in the pictures. It was a difficult space to take photographs because there was hardly any standing room. The light was very low and most of the shots were taken with a 3200 ISO setting.
His “actual” shop was the window ledge where he displayed all the made loaves. I’ve been watching the Great British Bake Off and I’m always amazed by the goods that come out of the oven. My own oven is under-utilised.

Oh, yummy!!!! And for using such a high ISO, your photos turned out wonderfully. What a great story 🙂
Yes, I thought that the photos would’ve turned out much grainier with such a high ISO, but they are ok. Teaches me not to be so afraid of using the high number ISOs when required.
Gorgeous pictures! You can practically smell the bread through them.
The smell was amazing, especially as it was such a small bakery. Just the thought of it evokes the smell. yumm.
Oh this looks delicious – don’t know much about lighting but these photos look great to me.
Thank you. You always drop by and say such lovely things !
Nice series. You were fortunate that he opened his shop to you. I can imagine how good the smell of baking bread must be.
I love the smell of baking bread. If only we could bottle smells that we can release to take us to our happy places when the need arises. Baking bread has got to be one of those smells !
I loooooove baking! It’s super relaxing!!! How did you get him to allow you to take pictures??? I’m always shy…
In small villages, when you ask people, they usually say yes. I wouldn’t do it in the city.
Excellent pictures. And I really like that kind of bread 🙂
Thank you. I liked the bread too!
