Decide on what to shoot and explain why you shot it and what you were looking for when you composed the shot.


Eastern Bakery is Chinatown’s oldest bakery, first opened in 1924 and the only shop in the country to make their mooncakes in-house. It’s seen one change in ownership, but the same recipes to comforting pastries remain. A sense of familiarity among the years of change the city has seen.

With this shot, I wanted to get an “outside looking in” perspective that also gave context to the environment, hence shooting through the window yet including the reflection of the streets.
