Yummy, Yummy, Infrared

I am in love all over again with infrared film!!!! It's been years since I have been able to shoot with this film due to failing eyesight, and then the meter died in my beloved Olypus OM-1 (my very first SLR camera, acquired with a tax refund back in our poverty days.) While searching for an add-on diopter correction for the viewfinder, I discovered that my OM-4 already had a built-in diopter adjustment knob. Eureka!!!! I'm back in business! I took the camera along with me to Chris and Christina's wedding just for fun and WOW! It was ideal infrared conditions both on Friday and Saturday; I actually had 35 perfectly usable exposures on the roll (and that is some kind of record: I am usually pleased to get 5 or 6.)

I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do!



And it's not so shabby in color, either!
