This month’s color for Angela’s color project is fuchsia, and damn, this picture is absolutely insanely incredible. She has featured more from Mosse’s Infra series at The Adirondack Review. Check it, yo.
I’ve blogged about Kodak’s infrared-sensitive Aerochrome film before, but it’s amazing every time I see it. It was used to pick out camouflaged military camps in South Asian jungles, since only real vegetation reflects that “pink” color, on account of a plant having no use for infrared light in photosynthesis and reflecting it away.
Another example of the rich world that exists beyond our senses.
