On Tuesday I got up at the somewhat unprecedented hour of 5:15 and went to take some photos at Hart’s Bakery near (almost under) Temple Meads in Bristol. I’d asked owner Laura Hart a couple of weeks before about going in to take some photos and she was more than happy for me to do so, and was wonderfully helpful throughout.

Here are a selection of the photos – I’ve converted pretty much all of them to black and white, and they seem to work well like that, but I have included both colour and b&w versions of those that work well in both.

Hopefully I’ll be going back in a week or two to do some more, at a more sensible hour when Laura prepares the bread and pastries for the next day.
