And the World tilted...

By dudler
OK, it's too late, strictly, for a Hallowe'en picture.

But this is a street shot - I got off the bus back from town, and saw this character at the bus stop. So I had to ask her if I could take her picture...

It was only when i came to edit it that I relaised she wasn't standing vertically, so I could straighten HER, and let the World tilt a bit.

She was entirely sober - off to a party in Warwick. And possibly the happiest zombie I've ever met.

This is an interesting question. Sometimes the concept of verticality has to be quite flexible...

A very cheery Zombie indeed. She was well in character as well,
Zombies are usualy a bit lopsided Wink. Nice work.

Maybe a foot had fallen off which is why she was standing lopsided.

No, I'm sure I'd have noticed a foot on its own. Being me, would probably have tripped over it.

Great to spot a quirky character and get a shot or two. I would like to have got a few shots at the party Wink

I love everything about this. She's so smiley and unpretentious even though her world is tilted. Her make-up is by no means perfectly done and the ordinary street clothes make her really approachable. And she's even wearing specs.
A superb street photo, and I wish I'd taken it.

Lovely. You have to take what you can when you can, even if the world is upside-down.Grin

Vertical is fluidly relative. If your head is higher than your feet, then in my view, you are technically vertical.
She needs to ditch the glasses in favour of lenses though...they don't suit the image of a zombie at all.

A cracking shot and terrific capture of her on the tilt; and what a wonderful smile for the photographer!
