View from an overlook in Hot Springs National Park, looking towards the Medical Arts Building, Central Avenue and the Arlington Hotel. This shot was taken with Kodak infrared black and white film all the way back in the summer of the year 2000. You can tell this is an old photo because the Majestic Hotel is still there in the distant background (it was still open when this was taken, it would later close and then be partially destroyed by a fire).
Infrared B&W film was fun to play around with, although it was notoriously tricky and delicate to use. The film was extremely vulnerable to light, and had to be changed in complete darkness. If you weren't careful, the film would be ruined by light leaks (which several exposures I took were, because I was definitely not careful enough handling it). There was only one place in the state that would develop the film - a little shop called Pinkey's Photographic that used to be located near Central High in Little Rock. Unfortunately it, like so many other little independent photography shops, have long since closed down.
