Baker's Art by Briar Richard

Waiting for the guest of honor to arrive at his 100th Birthday Party, I snapped this shot of a loaf of wheat bread in the dining area. With the amazing light and the arrangement of the knife, the chef aparently had a flair for presentation. If there’s a moral to this story, it would be that some things beg for photographic capture as much as they beg for physical consumption.

The observable Universe sprang into existence 13.7 billion years ago, and has evolved to observe itself. In my opinion, there’s no greater event to consider. I enjoy astronomy, photography, and time with my wife and little boy. While capturing and editing photos, I jam to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Air Supply, LMFAO, The Foo Fighters, REM, Barry Manilow, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Duran Duran, Weezer, The Flaming Lips, U2, Boyz to Men, Pearl Jam, Peter Gabriel, Queen, Color Me Badd, and The Beach Boys.

  • Thanks, Debbie! It was a great time, but the lighting was a huge challenge – very beautiful place that was lighted for ambiance, not photography. lol : )
