Lahore, April 16: For Atif Saeed, a 38-year-old photographer from Lahore, it was perhaps the scariest click of his time. Backed by his Lady Luck and assisted by his undeterred skill, the man took a chilling photo of a lion moments before it tried to pounce on him. Saeed lived on to show his photograph.
The picture, which can send a chill down the spine of the bravest, was taken in 2012 when the photographer visited the Lahore Safari park. It went viral over the Internet recently with people expressing both admiration and fear for the king of the jungle.
Atif had stepped out of the car and framed the animal in its elements. The man had thought to bring out the actual character of the lion and defied all odds to get his job done.
The lion noticed the photographer and advanced towards him before the latter just barely managed to reach his vehicle. He had the most prized possession of his life with him by then.
