For me, this photo evokes the carefree feeling of a sunny day in the countryside. I took the photo outside Ōhara Kōbō, a vegetable-dye (kusaki-zome) workshop north of Kyoto. One of the happiest moments I remember from that trip was standing in the dyeing shed, stirring my fabric around in a warm pot of Pagoda Tree dye, inhaling the scent of woodsmoke, looking out the window at the countryside.
