Occassionally I wake up and I'm reminded of the stunning violence that takes place over much of the world at any given moment. And the brave photographers that survive that danger to capture just some of those moments. This is photo series is quite stunning and sad;

A most moving testimonial to amazing fortitude and courage under horrendous and, ultimately, tragic circumstances.

Thank you for bring these photographs to our attention.

Holy heck - what a capture. Tracey is beyond extremely lucky to be alive after that.

Unbelieveable nerves to keep the finger on the camera trigger. I've not seen such a series before. Very moving capture.

Tactical analysis is as follows:

1) Tank
2) Soft target
3) Death

Those guys were about as equipped to take on a tank as the pimple on my ass. Furthermore, they were mugging for the camera and the photographer is partly to blame for their deaths.

The RPG would have been useless anyway, and they didn't know how to use it.

Pictures and stories like that makes you appreciate the peaceful place you live in.

Thanks for sharing.
