Photo shoot

by Marc on July 21, 2015

So on Sunday, I felt like making bread…even though it was a million degrees in my kitchen. I invited my new friend, Alex Tran over to my place. He wanted to take photos for a cool series he’s working on. We had met at one of my Mezza Luna classes. He’s a bright and charming young man with lots of talent.
Please take a moment and check out his Web site.
