Sense of Smell: Bread

CEE’S Fun Foto Challenge: Sense of Smell

_MG_1388 - smell

“The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water, is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight…”

It (Bread) leaves you filled with one of the world’s sweetest smells… there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.

I’m late on this one. Well, I was not happy with the shots of the breads, so I went to the Whole Food to take a few more photos of their wonderful bread. 🙂

      • Hi Amy, very interesting article.
        Even if the german Bread Consumption according to this stat isn´t even the highest worldwide (way to go,
        what´s going on with Turkey and Chile btw? 😉 it is a important part of our culture. Many people say, that there probably aren´t any places worldwide, where you might get a wider variety of bread. (Well, english wikipedia specifies thtat only for western and north europe, but nevertheless: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_cuisine#Bread) Of course this has although to do with the fact, that there is bread from many different countries such as Italy, French, Turkey, Greece and so on available.
        Indeed, as the article describes, I personally know many emigrated Germans, who are very disappointed by the fact that they can´t buy many sorts of bread in their countries. One may notice our passion for bread as we use the term Brotzeit (bread time, especially in southern Germany) for a snack and Abendbrot (evening bread, more common in the northern parts of Germany) for Dinner as well.
        Beautiful photos 🙂

  3. You do food shots very well, Amy. Those loaves of bread look delicious. Very fresh too. Great eye, great lighting. Interesting chart at the end. I would have thought Australia ate more bread than the other countries.
