EYE OF THE TIGER
In life we face many battles...some challenge us in new ways we did not expect. The will is tested, but never defeated. We’re mocked and humiliated, but stay humble. Such is the tiger, efficient and silent.
Leaking gaping wounds
Coughing fur balls to laughter
Beware the tiger
The tiger is the most evolved of all the cats, dare I say of all the land predators.
Proficient on land and in water; in pitch black, twilight or at dusk; in the tropicas or in the tundra...the tiger adapts and dominates its terrain.
Darkness is haunted
Impossible is hunted
Eye of the tiger
