the photographer himself comments this photo:
“I can assure you the sweet buns are delicious especially when they are straight from the oven but to get them fresh and at a fair price you must be up before sunrise and find the bakery in a small dark alley somewhere in the Muslim quarter…”

  3. I wonder how often they fall off! Me, I’d pay through the nose because I’d never find them early enough to get the best price!

  5. This really looks like hard work! When I saw a mini preview in my email I first thought that it would be some kind of art sculpture in the streets. Good thing it’s not, otherwise it would be even harder – if not impossible – to get the actual bun cart up the street!
    Oh and now your entry made me hungry.. I haven’t had breakfast yet!

  6. So: There is some reality to the mythological of Sisyphus: It was bread though! And they kept saying that ants work hard, when humans are doing that too. There is so much in your visual message, and so much more to go with it:

    Thank you Frizztext!

  12. The post reminded me of something Umberto Eco said during the interview in The Paris Review few years ago.
    “If by intellectual you mean somebody who works only with his head and not with his hands, then the bank clerk is an intellectual and Michelangelo is not. And today, with a computer, everybody is an intellectual. So I don’t think it has anything to do with someone’s profession or with someone’s social class. According to me, an intellectual is anyone who is creatively producing new knowledge. A peasant who understands that a new kind of graft can produce a new species of apples has at that moment produced an intellectual activity. Whereas the professor of philosophy who all his life repeats the same lecture on Heidegger doesn’t amount to an intellectual. Critical creativity—criticizing what we are doing or inventing better ways of doing it—is the only mark of the intellectual function.”
