It's been a little quiet on the site as of late and that drives me crazy! I enjoy writing, but finding the time isn't that easy. I'm on the tail end of editing our first feature film Good Day, so most of my time has gone to that. The plan is to change things in 2017 and come up with new material a bit more. That being said, here is something new!
I don't consider myself a photographer or anything, but taking pictures is something I enjoy doing. Whenever I visit a fun place or something random catches my eye, I'll snap a photo. I'll run it through different apps and edit it to look like vintage photography from the 80's/90's (It's an aesthetic I love) and post it on Instagram. Instead of just posting and seeing how many "likes" I'll get, I figured writing a brief description as to why I took it would be a cool concept, so here is the inaugural edition, Zombie Castle.
Above is a photo I snapped as I entered the "dark ride" Zombie Castle, located at Rye Playland. I'm pretty sure I've gone on this attraction about 50 times in my life, but never fully took the time to appreciate the art work plastered across the walls. All those zombies rising from their graves. The grotesque heads floating above; which stare down at you as you enter a void of darkness. Even the painted stone around the entrance appears sinister. I know It's basically just "horror" graffiti, but it's awesome! As a kid this artwork made these things intimidating as hell; it definitely tricked us all into shelling out a couple of buck and riding them, only to discover no flesh devouring zombies inside. Regardless I've always been a sucker for these types of haunted houses. No visit to a fair is complete until I go in one. Sure they always feel dated, but hold a certain charm you don't find on many attractions today.
