I went to a zombie crawl and all I got were these pictures of regular people

Do you ever just want to blurt something out without all the planning and brainstorming? I do. Especially now that mid-terms are over. I guess we arent ALL college students though, so maybe some of you who read this won’t empathize with the “too much homework, tired of rules and deadlines” thing. What it comes down to for me is that I’m just mentally and physically exhausted. Full time student and dad duties are wearing me out. Through all the banal everyday problems that we all deal with in our day-to-day lives somehow we manage to lift our heads up out of the sand and carry on. So I try to block out the news and thoughts of religious extremists and deadly diseases creeping ever closer to my doorstep, and I search for that silver lining that is becoming increasingly harder to spot.

So I jumped on the train and rode it into the heart of Denver with my camera in search of stories and precious moments in time. I went to a zombie crawl. I found myself drawn to the minority. The regular people. Sure I took plenty of pictures of crazy zombie get-ups and the like but these are the ones that stood out to me in that crowd of images. I snapped around 1,000 frames in 4 hours. Here are 12 of them.

  1. All you got? Get off it! These are great. You know, I’m no longer in school, but I’ve been there and not all that long ago. What sticks with me is the excitement of the new semester. All the things to be learned, peeling back layers on subjects that I might have once thought boring, but at the beginning of a new class sound fascinating. But, ya, mid term, it starts feeling so mundane, so full of deadlines and requirements and pounding facts into a Swiss cheese brain. And the farther into the semester it goes, the worse it gets till at the end it’s just a matter of digging in and bearing down till it’s over. Hang in there!
