I really wanted to photograph the line outside the bakery. When we went there on Saturday evening there were customers but no line.
My sister loves me a lot. She walked with me up Bleecker Street after our outing to Brooklyn.
I was able to photograph the line.
Tourists from Japan on Sunday Afternoon – they found the reference in a guide book
Here is the line at the Magnolia Bakery. Often photographed and talked about. My sister found a site online with 282 photographs of Magnolia Bakery products. Guess I was a little late with my desire to take this photo. But I did it anyway.
Earlier in the day we walked through Chinatown on Mott Street
Mary and I ate these delicious Hot Cross Buns from Rocco’s Pasticceria after we rode Jane’s Carousel (part of tomorrow’s post)
The theme this week seemed the most cryptic to me to decipher. I looked at the excellent example by Christopher Martin and read about how to go deeper into the scene. What to do when you are actually photographing. How to go “beyond the obvious”.
I didn’t go out and shoot specifically for the challenge but looked at what I had in my archives and tried to look into the photograph to see a whole new photograph within the image. Showing both photographs seemed the way to go so as to compare but I have decided to try to go with the challenge as intended, instead of justifying my edits.
One thing I learned- I photograph the obvious and need to consider the photograph hidden within the one that presents itself. We’ll see how it goes in the weeks to come. Intentional lost in the detailsphotographs instead of edited ones I have already taken. I will look for the picture within the picture as I shoot.
My theme might have ended up being “Crop in the Details” as I try to notcrop my images. Once I read about not cropping in an article Henri Cartier-Bresson.
So by looking for the “lost” part of the challenge I definitely “found” some new photographs.
Viewers can judge if the choices I made for the challenge are successful or not.
