3 Photographs Of Animals I Enjoyed


This is superfabulous. The meat and the need in the eyes. This is nature at its untamed best. 
"TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"  William Blake 
                                                                                

I once had a dream and I woke up feeling invincible, confident and strong... in that dream, I was swimming underwater with mighty huge elephants, strong, sturdy and totally in comfort. Later, I saw this picture and felt, "Wow! now how cool is this to be one with the wild?!" 


This is black. The blackest black can get. A black panther, crisp, clear and loud. This is something you dare not mess with. Nature at its finest fury. Black at its finest glory. 

p.c: none of these photos are mine, (wish they were). classics I got online somehow, don't know how. Thanks to the eyes behind the lenses.

Those pictures are fantabulous...brilliant...
Mind me correcting a bit?? Blake had originally spelled it as "Tyger" and not "tiger". Its one of my very favourite poems :)

@Swarnali: One archaic one too. "Tiger" was spelt "Tyger" then... yep, perfectly agree... glad you pointed it out and it was interesting to know that Blake decided to keep it that way as he used the tiger only as a metaphor in his songs of experience. Great girl! keep goin...

I remember reciting this poem back in my school days! Lovely snaps.

Man, they are classic and they are exquisite and the words go beautifully with them. What a creative approach!
