Shot this the other day at dusk and felt quite nostalgic.  It immediately took me back to the carefree days as a teenager frolicking in the summertime.

Python

The other day I got an unusual call for breaking news–breaking python!  But this wasn’t the usual “go down to the Department of Agriculture and see what they’ve go in the cage” ordeal.  I was sent to the Humane Society in Moiliili–interesting.  When I got there, apparently it was a red carpet greeting for this captured snake as myself and the rest of the news media awaited its arrival.

When the python arrived, I was immediately awestruck by its striking color, but most of all, its apparent desire for human contact and interaction.  The snake was a total ham!  I stuck my camera right in its face and it just kept flickering its tongue and following me.  Judging from the sizable lump in its mid-section, it had already eaten, so all the “killer snake” mental pictures weren’t in question.  Needless to say, the snake charmed the rest of the media for a good hour or so before being taken away by the Department of Agriculture.
