Welcome to the Tombs – The Walking Dead is an Abandoned Lovefest
Like millions of people around the world, I am a huge fan of the AMC series The Walking Dead. Since the mid-season premiere of Season 6 just kicked off Sunday, I thought I would have some fun and do something different by creating a homage to my favorite television series.
As many of my friends know, I am also a lover of shooting abandoned and derelict places wherever I may find them. That includes anything from decaying asylums to shuttered factories and ghost towns. And since I have a collection of images of abandoned places, it was fun to turn them into an apocalyptic world to celebrate the return of my favorite show.
As viewers of The Walking Dead well know, the characters find themselves in a zombie apocalypse and mostly abandoned decaying world, where humans are more dangerous than walkers. In the brave new world of the dead, abandoned buildings are everywhere.
This is another reason I love the series, as the spooky locations, cinematography and overall green, blurry sickly look are way cool. As if you are viewing these abandoned places through the eyes of the walkers. Perfect for Halloween too, my favorite holiday.
So I hope you will indulge my love for all things abandoned in this quick post. And if you are also a fan, you may find some Easter eggs within a few of the images, which I hope convey the ghastly look and feel only The Walking Dead does so very well. The image titles are named after Walking Dead episodes.
