28 Weeks: As you can see, Andy is wearing a football shirt, which is unusual of a post apocalyptic film.
Classic areas and landmarks in London have been used to show that it is defiantly London, and shows that the directors must have gone to extreme lengths to get these parts of London empty. But in particular it adds to how realistic the film is.
As you can see, Jim is walking around looking confused. His mouth is open, maybe symbolising him shouting for help.
The sky is cloudy and the streets are wet (from rain presumably). Despite this not having much to do with the apocalypse, it still adds to the glum and lonely feeling of post apocalyptic films.
There are various scraps of litter scattering the streets, showing that people have grabbed what they can and just dumped the waste.
