I have about a thousand unpublished posts, most of them containing just an outline of a story idea or an interesting photo to wrap an article around. This is one of those posts from 2009 and it starts with a photo of a girl and an albino python.
At the time, I had already published two articles about yellow snakes and semi-nude women, see Devon Aoki - Muslim Repellent - Muslim Honey Pot and Britney Spears and that Snake; so it was interesting to note how often snakes & women appear together in advertising and art.
When Panasonic decided to introduce its Lumix Digital Camera, they went to Miami’s famous South Beach to shoot pretty women in bikinis:
PhotographyREVIEW.com, Panasonic Lumix ZS3 / TZ7 - Snake Handler Girl
This was my favorite of the setup shoots that Panasonic arranged for us on South Beach. Yeah, the girl was hot. But since the snake kept moving around, I kept waiting for a different, better photo. I could have shot the girl and snake all day. It was addictive. The Panasonic ZS3's iA Intelligent Auto mode worked great for this. Seriously - I just let the camera make all the decisions. I'm a manual photographer, but I don't think I could have done better than the camera here.
