At a “Dad and Kids” night, along with everyone else, had the great priviledge to get up close and personal with some reptiles and a few other ‘friends’ …
This is “Sparkles” the diamond python … this image is untitled, because the child’s face says it all, more than I could hope to convey in a word or two … he was perfectly OK with Sparkles draped around his shoulders, but didn’t once take his eyes off her ;-)

Canon 50D, 50mm f1.8
Available light (internal building lights)
Straight from camera, no post-ed

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    Love the pursed mouth and the wide eyes of the boy. And I just noticed Sparkles is around his neck. Very cool.
