    Last Saturday in Dublin, the zombies took to the streets in aid of Irish cancer society and the RNLI (lifeboats) - I believe a guinness book of records beating amount of zombies!!

    Anyhow i was using mainly my nikon gear but managed a few shots with the x100

    :eek::eek: What is this celebration called??

    They are very well done - the zombies and your photos of them. I've never seen a child zombie. It's a little creepy.

    haha, a great set of photos which brought a smile to my face. I love the colours you've got too :)

    Edit, an alternative name for the last one could be "Where's Wally?"

    I must say that I've never seen so many happy looking zombies!

    You have to tell me what was this event? It can't be a regular occurrence, can it?

    M8 also does zombies

    We also had a zombie march several weeks ago although I think there were closer to 40 than 4000 participants here.

    :eek: So what is it about Zombie Marches? I must be living in a parallel universe because I've never seen one - except in The Night of The Living Dead.

    Good pix!

    This particular event was a fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society and also the Irish Lifeboat association. Last year was the first one with about 500 Z's this year it went viral!! The orgainsers needed a special permit from the city council and the zombies even had a police escort!

    I really enjoyed been a photographer for the event again this year (the Irish Cancer Soc is a charity that I am particularly attached to) and it is really fun day out (if a little chaotic!)

    ugog, thank you so much. Knowing the backstory for pictures such as these makes a big difference to me. Not that they weren't great pictures but having that knowledge makes me appreciate the event even more. Good for you for being such a big part of it and documenting it with aplomb! Chaos and fun for an important cause!:bravo-009:
