I find this shot quite menacing. The out-of-focus zombie in the foreground partially obscures the other zombie, who appears to be staring directly at you – as though he’s just noticed your presence. I deliberately processed it to make it dark and to exaggerate the shadows (though there were strong shadows and highlights to begin with).

Beach of the Dead V, 22 October 2011. Beach of the Dead is a “zombie walk” that takes place annually in Brighton near to the time of Halloween. Inspired by the classic horror film genre (particularly the George A Romero films), participants garb themselves up as the undead and parade en masse in character from the Victoria Gardens on Grand Parade to the Concorde 2 night club on the seafront.

This year an estimated 4000 people took part in the march.

  1. I agree. Quite menacing. The composition is spot on for me too. At first glace, I didn’t see the evil eye, but then quickly locked on, and then once locked on, I felt that was all I could see. I think that kind of surprise works. Nicely done.
