This Is Thriller

On Sunday afternoon, I joined some friends at an event I didn't even know existed in Portland: The Zombie Walk. This being Portland, a lot of the zombies didn't look much different from the crusty/hippie punks one sees around town, but there were crucial differences. Below are images and video from the day. The zombies' "attack" on the Light Rail and on Nordstrom's department store were especially gruesome. I was reprimanded for photographing the latter by an onlooker who described the incident as "vandalism," but I think what she meant to say was "zombie vandalism." I'll let you decide for yourself.
