zombie walk vancouver

since 2005, zombies have paraded their way through downtown vancouver and the tradition continued this year.  although we haven’t done the walk before, a friend’s wedding day landed on the day of the 2015 walk so they incorporated a zombie escape into their wedding video.
this year’s walk started at the art gallery and pathed its way down robson street, turning south at denman street and ending at english pay.  i lost count after the first hundred zombies passed by me but there were enough of the walking dead to halt traffic for over half an hour.  but how could you stay mad at them?

one of the most detailed of the day… the moss and scabs are pretty authentically downtown eastside vancouver, err, zombie-ish

it was a great day to bring the camera out except that i had already sent mine in to fuji for a warranty issue so i got to use haha’s much more complex setup.  with more than twice the features and me possessing less than half the knowledge, there was a steep learning curve for the day.  i don’t have a ton of memorable shots but what i’ve taken from the day was that canon users know their stuff.  my little fuji x-t10 feels like a fisher price model in comparison.

found a little zombie hunter as well lurking on the sidelines…
