By a lot of standards, ....heart of a Lion by `foureyes is a famous photograph. It is the Grand Prize Winner of the National Geographic Ultimate Photo Contest 2009 and has almost 10,000 favorites on dA. It is an excellent example of an amazing photograph and an admirable photographer receiving much deserved attention. I think the suggester gives an even more important reason: "This is not just a photograph but something that gives us hope just by seeing it and knowing that the man struggled and fought for his life no matter how hard it was."

....heart of a Lion


Badge Awards



I was captured by a cry of sadness when taking this photo :(
but later I realized that this amazing man probably had the heart of a Lion :heart:
...instead of lamenting, he had turned his life into a fight,.......and he wasn't going to lose it.

everytime I look at it I feel a sad happiness :)
