B/W gave pictures a new dimension!


A battalion!

One of the most beautiful fruit to photograph; they are like small sculptures.

Thanks, Simona, for your BWW contribution.

somehow though I love to see the beautiful colors


I can't believe I have never tried a persimmon. That is something that needs to change Simona.


Beautiful in sepia! Your farmers market must be amazing! I love your composition and the nice soft light falling on the persimmons.


The picture is of a fruit associated with it's color so deeply that I was shocked by it's architectural beauty. It reminded me of blueberries in for. The complexity and beauty of shape and form are highlighted by the use of black and white in this incredible picture. It truly is a stunning photo.


How interesting about the different ways persimmons are sold -- ripe/unripe. :-) I've never tasted the fruit before.

Thanks, Ami!

Indeed, Susan, they looked ready for a battle. I agree with you: they are photogenic (and so good to eat).

Hi Cathy. I can understand missing the color, which is so striking.

I think so, Val. I hope you can find some in your area, though it is a bit late in the season. If not, mark your calendar for next year.

Thanks, Lynne. It is indeed, a pretty amazing market and one of the oldest in California.

Thank you, Tami. Indeed, the color of this fruit kind of overpower our eyes. By removing it, I focus the attention on the beautiful shape and the set up of the table was perfect for achieving the shift.

Dear Paz, I warmly recommend you try. If you prefer firm fruit, go with the Fuyu, but I think eating a ripe Hachiya is an experience not to be missed.
