Comicon


The "Comicon" or Comic Convention took place at the Phoenix Convention Center from June 5th through June 8th filling downtown Phoenix with a huge variety of costumed participants.  Since I was down there Friday night for the symphony, I took the opportunity to snap a few shots of some of the characters I saw.  This young person was playing the violin right outside Symphony Hall.


These handsome fellows were enjoying the talents of the young violinist.


This group was having a conversation outside the conference center when I pointed the camera in their direction.

It was so busy downtown that it felt similar to walking the streets around Times Square in New York.  It was wonderful seeing downtown Phoenix so colorful and lively.

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm visiting a ghost town.

I have never been to a Comicon. It looks like it's a lot of fun for the participants and photographers.

The attendees really get into the act.

Excellent shots, Sharon... particularly that first one.

Jack said...

The attendees of the Phoenix Comicon seem to be a bit older and better costumed than their peers in Hartford a week earlier.

I'll bet there were even more interesting shots in the convention.
