Reader Photo: The H.M.S. Zombie

“I wasn’t exactly sure why these woman were dressed up as zombies,” but that didn’t stop Ric Berryman from turning his lens on the three women in this photo, taken aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach on Saturday.

After Ric presumed that they worked onboard the ship and were part of another attraction, it turned out they were part of a recreation of the music video for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Berryman used a Nikon D600 to make the image.
