Zombie Walk

IMG_5337 Last night was the Zombie Walk in Louisville which was an experience if nothing else. If you’ve never heard of a “zombie walk” this will sum it up, or at least Louisville’s version of it: the zombies meet up on at the corner of Bardstown Rd. and Eastern Parkway and walk a couple blocks letting people take their picture and ending at a pizza joint. Apparently this has been going on for a couple years now but I had no idea about it until some of my local flickr friends mentioned it on twitter.

I was surprised at the number of zombies out; there were probably 200 of them running amok. I’ve never got the fascination with zombies and that whole genre of movies but it was funny to see what extremes people went to. I think the best part of the evening was when a TARC bus (public transportation) was stopped in the middle of the road and zombies were beating on the windows. I can’t imagine what was going through the riders heads if they had no idea what was going on. HA.

My camera and I were fighting most of the evening because I left my speedlite at home and didn’t want to use my on-camera flash. After realizing that most of my photos were going to turn out blurry I decided to put it away and not get anymore aggravated. I haven’t been using my camera very much lately, in fact, I think last night was the first time I picked it up in two weeks! I need to get back in a routine of using it but I need to do a lot of things. If you’re interested the rest of the photos are located here.
