Bagel baker-St. Lawrence Market

View Larger Image

Bagel baker-St. Lawrence Market

Taken last weekend while I was in the St. Lawrence Market here in downtown Toronto.
One of the many "shops" inside the market is St. Urbain Bagel, a bakery which produces bagels in the Montreal style.
As I approached, the baker had just pulled a batch out of the wood-fired oven and was doing some quality-control before putting them up for sale. This shot was actually quite difficult to get as there is always a line-up for the fresh bagels, and I had to get kind permission from a customer to cut in line and get an unobstructed view.

I might have opened up a stop to brighten his face, and cropped off the open furnace door. Otherwise, a nice capture.

Thanks for commenting.
That crop was suggested and tried and I didn't like it. For me all the elements must be there for the story to be told.

True, the open furnace door adds to the story, although it is a distraction in the photograph. Sometimes I think too much about the photo and not enough about the story.

Jim is right about the furnace, but it is necessary to tell the story. I think that if you cut it out, it would really detract from the story because what the baker is doing is not all that engaging. With it, the story is complete.

Baker. Bagels. Oven. The entire story I wanted to tell.
(I was going to say the "hole" story, but I thought it was a terrible pun so I didn't).
