On the Hunt for Joy: Colour Code

This contribution to Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Colour Code isn’t really about the prompt. I was considering a couple of ideas for the challenge when I remembered these photos.

Some of my regular readers may remember me saying that I ran the photo department of a medical research establishment in the early/mid 1980s. These are photographs of a model of the Influenza virus produced for the cover of a book on influenza research.

CFFC: Opposing Colours

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Opposing Colours.

The first photo came to mind immediately, the second took me a while to come up with.

Ice on Lake Huron at sunset. Taken in the spring when the ice was breaking up. It’s the only time I have seen ice formations like these.

A false colour photo of a model of the Influenza virus. Produced for the cover of a book on Influenza research I deliberately used opposing colours for some versions.

Friendly Friday: Alternative Version

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Alternative Version.

The prompt got me thinking about some of the photos I have taken when I gave an editor alternative versions. That made me think of one shoot in particular.

In the early 1980s I developed a process that allowed me to produce false colour photos from a monochrome original. Somehow the editor of a book on Influenza research saw some of these and commissioned me to produce one for the book cover.

This is one of the false colour versions I produced from a monochrome original.

And this is a colour shot of the Influenza virus model produced by putting coloured gels on the studio lights.

Red and Blue

Or blue and red if you prefer.

Having already posted for the latest Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge which is Color of Your Choice I thought of this shot.

Taken In the mid 1980s, this is a photo of a model of an Influenza virus and was taken for the cover of a book on Influenza research.
