Pretty snakes in captivity don’t scare me a bit–
Whoa, Gertie–hold it right there!! I bet the majority of people reading that opening sentence think there’s nothing "pretty" about a snake. These are my friend Paige’s pet snakes, and they wouldn’t hurt a flea. A mouse, definitely, but not a flea, or more importantly, ME! I’ll have to go back to her house to take reallyREALLY good pictures sometime, but for now, I loved this one for this week’s Friday’s 40-or-less Photo Challenge.
I hope the image didn’t scare you from writing a response–remember, it doesn’t have to be a literal take on the picture; I went with the abstract this time…decidedly darker. One look at snakes and my mind inevitably wanders back to the Garden.
If you’ve written a post, be sure to link it below so I can find you :)!
Pleasures soon fleeting.
Its wake often grieving.
Got mine up! Barely squeaked in at just 40 words. Had to delete an “and” to make it. (The hyphenated word counts as one, right??) 😛
I like yours, very clever. Sin bites, hehe. It sure does!!! 🙂
Mine is up girl. Go over and read it. I just visited Amber’s. LOVE IT! Love yours too! “Sin bites.” Love that last line!
Bleh, just couldn’t make myself do it… I have a thing about snakes.
Sorry, but I would not do what you are doing in that pic, I can barely type this comment much less a 40 word anything (luckily the pic is up there where I can’t currently see it).
