Toronto, Cakes, Pastries, and Retro-Rudolphs

Hello everyone, I haven’t done any posts for the last while because my wife and I have been in Toronto visiting our daughter for the last 8 days. It’s great to get away from routine and experience new things.

In my earlier postings I had mentioned how I love candy for its shapes and colours, well I may as well add pastries and cakes to that list. I was photographing cakes and pastries in bakery windows as well as in the showcase in one bakery/coffee shop.

Beautifully done cakes and pastries are like little sculptures. It is going to be interesting to see how these little morsels make their way into my work, lots of ideas are coming to mind.

Just before we left for Toronto I got in touch with Lori Rudolph of Retro-Rudolphs. We had a great talk and have been sending e-mails back and forth. Check out her website at http://www.freewebs.com/retro-rudolphs/. While you are doing that check out her blog http://retrorudolphs.blogspot.com/.
