The Walking Dead; Woodbury; Alexandria

When Chuck told me he wanted to take a vacation to
Tennessee I thought it would be fun to stop where they're
filming "The Walking Dead" tv series.  They film in 
Senoia GA, which is on the way to TN.  So we made this
our first stop on our vacation.  

 I should have done more research to see what angles
they shot scenes from.  This is Woodbury where the
governor lived.  They actually used the town of Senoia
as Woodbury.  I should have shot this from the other end of
the street from some of the scenes I saw online.

This is "The Walking Dead" store where they
sell souvenirs from the show.  I saw the same
posters at Michaels for 1/2 the price.

You can see the coffee cup sign.  That's "The Walking Dead"
cafe.  It's basically a Starbucks.  You go downstairs
to visit the cafe and other shops. They also have an area set up
like the prison in the show and a motorcycle that
belonged to Daryl.  Actors from the show had autographed
the walls in the prison set.
What was interesting in the cafe was the chalkboard
that listed the casts favorite coffee or other drinks and
they signed their names on this also.

Daryl was visiting the store.
 I took a photo of his autograph for Corey.

 Senoia is a pretty little town.
 They used the town of Senoia for Woodbury.  They 
built the church they found the wimpy pastor at and
the entire town of Alexandria and really put a wall up
around it.  We were walking down the street looking at
the set when Chuck stepped on the curb.  A security guard immediately
said, "Sir, step off the curb, step back!"  He took his 
job really serious.  Scared us both.
They weren't filming at the time.
We found out filming was going to start 2 weeks
later but there was a ton of work going on
getting ready for the upcoming season.  

We met other fans of the show.  One woman could tell
us where different scenes were filmed.  Like the 3rd house
in was where Michone had a dream sequence.  I really
didn't remember it.  She also told us where the house was
that Carl sat on the roof eating the giant can of pudding.
The house where Carl sat on the roof eating pudding.
It's an actual house in the town not part of the set.

They made the church where they found the wimpy pastor 
look like it's in the middle of nowhere in the tv show but it's 
right next to the set of Alexandria they built.  Amazing what 
they can do with CG.

 Some of the railroad scenes were shot somewhere 
around here.

This looked like one of the many roads you see them walking or
driving on in the show.
It was fun visiting where they film the show.
We met some interesting people and some self
proclaimed stalkers.  I wonder how the actors and 
actresses feel about that?
