I went to Ross’s graduation party on Saturday, he recently graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
I decided to pack light and only brought my 50mm lens, it’s great for indoor with low lighting and food photography. The foods were delicious and my only problem was that I have recently developed food allergy and I tried my luck with a few dishes. Needless to say I suffered terribly and not worth the risk after I came to my senses but by then it was too late.
Most guests gave money as gifts, a typical Laotian gift.
Ross has a ball python as pet. Ball pythons are so named because when threatened they roll themselves into a tight ball, tucking their head inside their coils. Young ball pythons grow about a foot a year for three years. They can live for a long time with proper care – up to about 50 years, although 20-30 appears to be more typical. Source.
I’m glad he’s inside a glass tank, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to capture these images. I’m afraid of snake of any kind.
Smokey is a family dog, and Bo brought him to live with his sister’s family when he was a puppy.
It took 4 girls to walk this dog.
I stop by Grandma’s to see her garden. Her cucumber is doing very well this year in comparison to mine, wait till you see my cucumber, it’s a very sad sight.
This post is turning into my normal Saturday Random Photos, and the last set is my sister’s love bird. I took these photos while visiting with her that morning.
All photos were taken with Canon T2i and EF50mm f/1.4 lens.
