I've got nice veins...

... or so says one of the guys I work with. According to him, they are almost too nice. (click to see them larger)

Apparently, blood is very opaque to infrared light, allowing veins to show up pretty accurately.

I'm just glad he caught me on a day that I was pretty warm and my circulation in my hands was actually going.

One of these days I'd love to experiment with digital IR photography (not just of my hands, either). We'll see -- right now I don't have a camera I can donate to IR conversion.
