When I offered to photograph some friends' snakes I thought they would be obliging subjects. Turns out that they are either camera shy, or (with the sun on their backs) escapologists. They also slither on the ground - requiring the photographer to do likewise. This is not good news for an ageing bloke with dodgy knees, hip, and back.
Despite the problems I'd quite like another crack at the snakes. They have interesting skins and make nice shapes. Consideration would have to be made as to background, and a raised working surface would help my old bones!
