Stills from life

Stills taken from real life gone terribly surreal.
Still one.
A woman, seemingly ahead of an approaching train, is in fact running ahead of the snipers' bullets in Sarajevo (1993). The photograph was taken by Roger Richards.
“One is not advised to wear strong colours. Avoid red at all costs. The sniper is like a bull. Motley colours are also a bad choice. The sniper is a fool by definition and every fool loves motley colours. Wear grey, brown, burgundy.”
From Sarajevo for Beginners by Ozren Kebo.
Still two.
A train wreck at Gare Montparnasse in Paris (1895).
Mima Tulić Kerken and the passengers, against all odds, survive.
