He means business with that hat and camera! Beautiful cake it looks as if it is sitting on a sawn of log, very interesting idea. I like the composition with the guests at the side and all so perfect in B&W

Cruz from exurbia, United States

He looks more like an old fashioned reporter than a modern photographer...the b/w enhances that feeling even more....good choice

What a lovely dreamy-creamy, sugared moment this makes . . I like the hurried presence of the photographer and the lingering, lasting significance of the cake.

Yep, odd photographer. He just needs a "Press" ticket sticking out of the band on his hat, and we would be in the 1940's!
