Tagging along the route of the photon particles (89800004)

The photon differs from many other elementary particles, such as the electron and the quark, in that it has zero rest mass; therefore, it travels (in a vacuum) at the speed of light.

 

This guy (I mean Photon) is the elementary particle responsible for the electromagnetic phenomena. His scope of work is to carry electromagnetic radiation of all wavelengths, including in decreasing order of energy, gamma rays, X-rays, ultraviolet light, visible light, infrared light, microwaves, and radio waves. Oh yes, of course he also carries the visible light that we all use for photography.

Photon particles travelled through the: Nikon Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 AI lens, into a Nikon FM2 film SLR body and finally it arrives on the Fujichrome Velvia 100 (RVP100F)

And all this took place at the: Redang Island, South China Sea, Terengganu, Malaysia

And I: Did not mess with what the photons did to the film emulsion afterwards
