For the love of bread

Here on Flickr, we have a whole lot of foodies — heck, who doesn’t like food. We’d like to celebrate all the wonderful photos of what we all eat on our blog, starting with a little something inspired by Your First Loaf of Bread on Yahoo Food.

Enjoy this photo selection of delectable breads and the bakers that make them.
