Frank Keefer ran a snake show on the Siebrand Brothers carnival midway. Photo mid 1940′s taken in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Later Norman Prather took over the snake show in the 1950′s. As a child, my family knew a man who ran a snake show in a locally owned carnival. It was my childhood dream to join the carnival and work the snake show. I think that is when I first fell in love with carnivals.

Snake handling is a religious ritual in a small number of Pentecostal churches in the U.S., usually characterized as rural and part of the Holiness movement. The practice began in the early 20th century in Appalachia.

And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Handling of serpents, a part of the ceremony at the Pentecostal Church of God. This coal camp offers none of the modern types of amusement and many of the people attend the services of this church more for the mass excitement and emotionalism than because of belief in the tenets of this church.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
beautiful. In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. Runway models have nothing on her. The age and wisdom along with the graceful beauty and power of this woman is just stunning. I would love to sit and tlak with her for a few hours!- these are the kinds of photos I want to take. I want to take pictures that capture the soul and spark emotion in people.
