THE END of the WORLD!! (293/365 DAYS, 3.0)

October the 19th 2013 
will be remembered as the day of the living dead 
as they roamed the streets of Montreal!!


At huge risk for my own life, 
I bring you these pictures.
Run for your life!!! 
Zombies are coming!! 
Zombies are coming!! 























It was a fun event
as usual!! 
I must say though, 
between a baby carriage behind my legs and the kid kicking me, 
the police pushing me backward [toward the kid
and other annoying photographers, 
it is a wonder I managed to take 143 pictures, 
which I brought down to 40, 
then after "tweaking" them, 
brought it all down to 23 pictures in a final report on the event. 
Some made it easy... 
I removed pics with kids more often than not 
as it is my policy
Then I removed those who talked or texted on their cellphone, 
and those who casually chatted with their fellow zombies. 
And most of all: 
I removed those who smiled at the camera!!! 
Zombies don't smile at a camera!! 
They just eat the photographer!!!!!!!!! 
I also removed those who weren't in character... 
This said, 
I really enjoyed this parade. 
Coming back next year!! 
:D~

PS: 
I was even interviewed... 
Wonder if it'll make it through editing?!?... 
:D~ 


Found this on YouTube... 
:D~

  1. And you were dressed how? Montreal sure knows how to party. These are grrrrreat shots TB ... and I am guessing your editing added a touch of gore. It is that time of year, but only the young would have the time or panache to go out on the street like that ... I just enjoy someone taking pictures of it :) Hope all is well with you ...

    1. Andrea, you'd be surprised as some seniors did put on a good show.
      I just didn't get the opportunity to get some good shots...
      Zombies do not discriminate!!
      Everybody is welcome!!

  2. Your photography gets ever more creative. You take the frightening and turn it into terrifying!

    1. Thanks Alan!!
      There are times when I question myself on the way I do things,
      wondering if I'm overdoing it, or something...
      but I enjoy as much taking pictures as editing them.
      I can see it in my mind as I focus my camera on a subject
      what I'll do with it later.
      Nothing wrong in having a bit of fun.

    1. It was my second year at that event and it is always interesting to see,
      even though I'm not a die-hard fan of the genre...
      Go figure!!
      I seem to prefer vampires and werewolves.

  6. Super crazy! We had a Zombie walk a few years ago that I posted on Youtube - http://youtu.be/y7Brsh1OGEI
    It took a very long time as they don't really march but shuffle. Seemed like half the town was possessed. During the election year in 2008, Ex-Govnor Sarah Palin was scheduled to speak at the civic center at the same time that the Zombie Walk was to stomp past. City officials re-routed them so no one would get confused.
    This year it got canceled. Maybe a shortage of brains.

    1. As the woman said in your video:
      We appreciate the effort!!"
      I see the same situation presented itself in your parade as in any of the genre I presume,
      some folks grasp the concept better than others!!!
      Funny about Sarah, I would have done the opposite and made the Civic Center a pit stop for the parade.
      But that's just me!!
      :D~
