Taken with eos 40d 4/70-200 mm L at 200

Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the cream of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watchin’ us all in the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
They stack the odds ’til we take to the street
For we kill with the skill to survive


Risin’ up, straight to the top
Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

    honestly, if I saw him looking at me with that look and that posster , it tells me one thing… do NOT move. This cat is ready to pounce, and if you run, he surely WILL give chase! Not much anyone or anything can do at that point but kiss your ace goodbye! LOL WONDERFUL shot!

  • Thank you for sharing your inner feelings Patricia!Watch your backside!
