The reason we chose the weekend we did was because of the Zombie walk. The concept is simple, meet in a park dressed as a Zombie, walk through Prague. Scare people.
My shot has been fiddled with, as I wanted to give the feeling of what I saw. The shots "Off the back of the camera" didn't reflect what I thought I was seeing and feeling.

My mother in law has not been able to fly home because of another Icelandic ash cloud, well, at least that's what she said. Now I know she sneaked off to Prague!

Love this creepy angle - you got dramatically close to the action! I wonder what effect firing a flash unit might have on these Zombies?
