Rembrandt in the factory
Today we went to the algarroba (carob) factory. With tons of carob. (5 cars full) As we have a field with carob trees. The carob beans used to be sold as food for horses but the cosmetic industry and eco market have found their hidden healthy properties.
I use carob flower often when baking bread which gives it a lovely soft texture and taste.The photo is a bit grungy as it’s made with a new camera (a Fujifilm XT20) which I bought for filming B roll and quick shots.
I’d only made one shot here and it turned out to be completely underexposed (almost black) as I didn’t know the camera that well.. So I had to do some heavy magic in lightroom to recover some of the image ending up with a Rembrandt!
So the quality for pixel peepers is perhaps not the best but I know this little camera can do much more. Still it’s a miracle what I could recover from the file.
This is what you call a real factory with belts, forklift trucks and pallets. No AI robots or shiny computers. The sweet smell of carob (usedd as an alternative for chocolate) heavy in the air.
