Bovine Bakery–Behind the Counter Scenes

In Bovine Bakery…Pie in the Sky? I reported on the mural above the display case. This article will attempt to take you on a photographic tour behind the counter to see what is involved as the bakery prepares for the day.   

In order to fill the empty display case, work begins early–in this case 2:30 am–and continues throughout the day. Now I will admit that I did not make the start time, but I did make 5:45 am, which was early enough for me! 

I have had some experience photographing people working at various community events, such as those sponsored by Rebuilding Together Petaluma. Working inside the close quarters of a bakery kitchen was quite a different challenge in that I had to balance the desire to get a photo against the need to not get in the way. Fortunately, I am still somewhat nimble!

Thanks again to Bridget Devlin and the staff of the Bovine Bakery for this opportunity. 

Please Note: Individual photos may be viewed in higher resolution by clicking on them. I have also included a slideshow at the end.

And now, it is time for your tour.


From the kitchen to the display case…

Time to open…

  1. Great job, Frank! I can taste the sticky buns and the plump oatmeal cookies as I write. And don’t forget the snickerdoodle cookies. I must make it a point to get to the Bovine Bakery SOON! Yumm!

  2. Better watch out Frank….your photography is becoming excellent and composition is outstanding. You could be developing a wonderful skill. Oh, My!

    Darned straight…I’ll be stoppin’ in!
