While in New Zealand, I got totake some photos in a strawberry processing plant, basically mid-process, while the workers were on their breaks. Consequently, I got to see strawberry bits in all levels of intactness. Getting to photograph these berries on and around the machinery that takes them where they need to go, I got to capture an interesting intersection of organic and inorganic — the point at which the land was done growing these things and when humans started using them for their own devices.
The results are alternately appetizing and unappetizing, but also representative for how the New Zealand agriculture industry gets produce to the people that want it.
EDIT: I realize now that I neglected to post manyt of my pictures from my 2006 trip to New Zealand, so now seemed as good a time as any to post them. Here is what the same strawberry processing plant looked like then, post harvest and therefore minus a lot of the goop.
