29 Photos Captured a Second Before a Small Catastrophe

Like VK on FB:

As beautiful as some may be, posed photographs aren’t as impressive as those that capture something completely unexpected. What’s truly impressive is when something suddenly happens and it shatters everyone’s expectations. The ability to capture such photos just seconds before the “real” action takes place is quite rare and that’s exactly why these photos are so exciting.

Bright Side collected some photos that show just how unpredictable life can be.

This is exactly what everyone is always afraid of when it comes to opening champagne bottles:

So many emotions — with just one cup.

It seems that this catapult still works.

It would definitely be safer inside the chicken house.

Run, Forrest, run!

Even the dog is shocked.

The splash of emotions is just about to happen.

We wish them both a soft landing.

Slight miscalculation

The most important thing here is that the water is of a pleasant temperature.

Everything is just beautiful in this photo.

Dedication to the sport

Everyone must learn this lesson sooner or later…

Just enough time to cover your ears before the deafening shriek…

A future boxing champion

The question of how well the little car is tied to the big one is on the mind of every driver behind the car(s).

This is why docks need rails:

When rugby was not your choice:

When the customer is not happy with the photo:

The volcano also decided to pose.

Where is the bottom and where is the top of this photo?

Another second and the only thing left of the cupcake will be frosting on the nose.

Such equanimity can only be envied.

The law of the jungle in action

Bon Appétit!

The camera will probably be unable to clearly capture what’s going to happen in the next few seconds.

Taken a second before the baby broke the camera lens with the toy gun.

Water halo

This is probably not what the child imagined as “winter fun.”

We hope that the people in these pictures were all OK in the end. Have you or your friends had similar situations? Please share your photos in the comments!
