Last week I baked the most enormous loaf of bread I’ve ever seen. It looked like the tire of a Smart Car. I kept trying to take a picture of the bread that would truly capture its incredible size, but, for some reason, every picture I took made the bread look simply normal-sized. So then I thought that if I placed regular kitchen items next to the bread and took a photo, maybe the juxtaposition of the bread next to the commonly-sized item would accurately portray its largess.
First I tried putting the bread next to an apple:
The bread still looked pretty normal, so I tried something else. Behold, bread with Cholula:
That didn’t work at all–somehow the bread came out looking even smaller, which was weird. So then I moved on to what I was sure would be a surefire winner, bread with an egg:
Still not working. Bread with a dinosaur?
Still no good.
And then it hit me. Maybe the trick to really showcasing the bread’s hugeness was to place the bread next to something animate that could truly–with emotion–display just how large the loaf of bread really was. So then there was this:
Now do you see what I mean? Huge. That bread is huge.
