After Muxi Fachang's Song dynasty painting, Six Persimmons.
Persimmons always remind me of California, where they grow so abundantly. They also remind me of my father; he wanted to name me the Japanese word for Persimmon but it sounds ridiculous to English speakers. One thing my father and I have in common is our love for this fruit--the winter variety, fuyu-kaki.
The unripened fruit can be fermented to make a dye called kakishibu. This can be used to tone cyanotypes because it is high in tannic acid which binds with iron.
