Persimmons in the Mist

8x10 print

Printed with archival inks on

100% Cotton Rag Photo Paper


The persimmons in this photo were possibly the first I’d ever seen; I still remember how fascinating the bright fruits seemed, nestled in branches like Christmas ornaments. This particular tree grows in a garden created in a rare gap between houses in Montepulciano, and is probably overlooked by most people who stop there for the broad view of the valley. But on this misty morning, with the usual view concealed, the persimmons took center stage.

In the time since that long-ago visit to Montepulciano, my parents have bought a place in the center of the small Tuscan town. It’s become like a second home, giving me a chance to observe the tree in different seasons/weather conditions. The misty setting captured in this photo is still my favorite.

Persimmons in the Mist is printed on 100% cotton, museum-grade paper. The image itself measures 8 x 10 inches (20.1 x 25.4 cm). The print is titled & signed on the back, and packaged in a clear archival sleeve.

18 - Persimmons in the Mist - 8 x 10 Print

I don’t think I even knew what a persimmon was before moving to Italy, but now I look forward to their return each fall—the plump orange balls make for a very October-y fruit. My favorite way to eat one is to place it upside-down in a bowl, gently prod the delicate skin with a knife (if  hasn’t already split) and then sprinkle the revealed pulp with a little cinnamon. You can scoop it out with a spoon, like fruit pudding. A dollop of plain yogurt adds a nice counterpoint.
