I've been attending the San Diego Comic Convention since 1985, and have many photos of comic professionals, icons, fans, models, movie stars, rock stars, and exhibitionists who mingle with the Great Unwashed every year, for 4 days straight, (usually in the muggiest, hottest time of year).
The majority of these photos were taken with an old school 35 mm Bell 'n' Howell camera that my brother gave me in 1968. I also used a hand held light meter. That's the "thing" hanging around my neck in some of the pix.
Credits to pix taken by other friends are duly noted.
These Commandos from Planet Hood started doing this skit where they made two normal looking guys kneel on the floor with their hands behind their heads, yelling at them the whole time. Like classic LAPD behavior. No one in the crowd was smiling, a few people looked visibly upset, and a couple were shaking their heads and then it got REAL quiet when one of the silver guys shouted the "N word".
