Shapes of a persimmon

I took this shot of a freshly sliced persimmon because I thought it was interesting how the fruit held its shape even after cutting. I included the long shadow to give the simple scene a more dramatic look.
As usual I used a very simple setup, just the fruit on a white plate lit by a desklamp.
And if you've never tried a persimmon they are pretty good and tough to describe. They look like a cross between apples and tomatoes and taste like spiced pudding.

I like it a lot- very zen. I have yet to try a persimmon, but maybe I'll pick one up at Whole Foods one day if they have them.
