A few hours at Comic Con

The last time I was at Comic Con it was held at the El Cortez Hotel.  I could walk into a panel discussion that included Leonard Nimoy and there would be empty seats!  Those days are long gone but Comic Con is still going strong.  My mom and I decided to go check out the happenings around Comic Con this year and here are some of the interesting sights.

Just off the trolley and we see lots of crowds across the street from the convention center
Cool costumes and they were very happy to pose. The guy even gave Mom her own weapon for the photo op!
The crowds in the Gaslamp area

Sharknado advertisers

Another neat costume
Crowds crossing to the Convention Center to go into Comic Con
Uber and Colony - advertising and rides!

Norman Reedus (from Walking Dead) handing out roses - though I had no idea who he was at the time since I don't watch Walking Dead :)
 Of course there were many more sights as we walked around.  Advertising is plastered everywhere, driving around everywhere and often walking around everywhere.  It was a great couple of hours of people watching!
