DC Zombie Lurch 2007

Annual (2d year so far) DC Zombie Lurch. Started at the Washington Monument and ended near Farragut North.

High points included the Thriller Dance in the beginning, getting followed and stopped by Park Police, and Lurching through the Metro as well as a Borders Books.

Low points included low turn-out for the Thriller Dance, too-quiet music, slow lurch start, shitty megaphone, wrong turns and some wasted time wandering where there were no bystanders.

Still a great time and a great turn out. Can't wait to see how many people show next year! I played a lot with saturation (for colour) and contrast (for B&W) just to get a 'Zombie Feel'. Caught some motion which was not easy. I really need an external flash!!! Just so everyone knows, i was a photographer, not a Zombie. Sorry - no pictures of me! Send me email if you participated and would like a DVD with all the photos.

Mexicali Blues...

... in all the times in the past 6 years i have been to Mexicali Blues, i always "mis-ordered"... meaning.. i ordered something that did not make me happy. Now i have finally discovered Shrimp Enchiladas... with a margarita.

Now i am happy!

Arlington Dogtober Days...

... and i don't really like dogs... but they were so colourful and cute. So many looked like their owners. It was a really good day and i did not mind smelling like dog afterward.

My Oma...

... spent a week here in DC and i think she liked it.   Many restaurants and many beers.   Interesting fact: She loves to have a eyelets put into her women's billfolds to accommodate a ring of keys.  i think that is very smart of her.
