Dead Man Walking

Dead Man Walking
Calgary had it's annual Zombie Walk on Saturday, October 17, 2009. The undead arose at Olympic Plaza, staggered down Stephen Avenue Walk, then limped to Tomkins Park for a rest, and finally undied at Shaw Millennium Park. This year the event was used to collect food and funds for the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank. For the first time, I used a Canon EF 50mm f/1.88 II lens, which for it's price, is quite good for what I wanted, which was to create a small depth of field effect, and to have a fast shutter speed.
