“Making photos around the railway? You are a terrorist.”, at least this is what Dmitry says. “You can’t count how much the photographers were flipped with a middle finger by the railway drivers. Often the photographers are beaten and their expensive equipment is destroyed.”. And sometimes they even get shot as you can see inside.
“If you get closer to a train driver can throw something at you and/or spill some unknown (you guess what!!) liquids on you”, says Dmitry. The photo above is showing the driver getting ready to spill something on a photographer.
And on this photo a guy shoots onto the photographer. Actually its a freeze frame from the video below:
As the Dmitry tells the bullet got into the photographer’s finger, of the hand he was using to hold the camera lens.
As Dmitry says they later contacted Railroad management regarding this accident, but all they got is the response that the driver was acting in good manner (quote “was shooting in the air to warn the photographer to get out of the way and not to be injured”, so the driver in question still works in the company.
