Making Bread

It is fascinating to photograph in Mexico where so many things are done the old fashion way. On my last trip to Alamos, Sonora Mexico we took a short walk from the alameda into the barrio where we were invited in to a local bakery. It was dark, humid and everything was made by hand. The bread was cooked in a wood-fired oven and the finished goods delivered door to door by a young boy on a bike at 2:00pm, mas o menos.
