Amazing sunset from Balboa Park’s West Mesa!

Would you like to see some amazing sunset photos?

I happened to be in the right place at the right time as the sun set this evening. I was walking along Balboa Park’s West Mesa, looking up at lace-like, brightly lit clouds, when color began to seep into the sky.

As I continued south the sun descended. When I reached Marston Point, the sun’s last red rays peeped over Point Loma in the distance.

In some of these photos you can see not only the nearby buildings of Bankers Hill, but distant Point Loma, and glimpses of San Diego Bay and even North Island. In one photograph you can see a small part of the downtown skyline.

If you are nervous or squeamish, don’t look at these photos or read the captions. I’m warning you. It’s all quite gruesome.

The events you are about to witness happened today at 2017 San Diego Comic-Con. Some of the fans were completely unprepared for what happened…

Everyone was having a great time at Comic-Con. I was just wandering about, not paying very close attention.

That place looks cool. I'll go check that out. I wonder what they mean by Deadquarters?

I see people are learning fighting skills to fend off these roving zombies.

A tiny version of Deadpool was swinging a bat wrapped with barbed wire. I think he nailed a couple zombies.

Comic-Con prepares for a zombie apocalypse!

The first of the walking dead have arrived in San Diego for 2017 Comic-Con. Fortunately, this guy was able to jump out of a hungry zombie's grasp just in time.

Workers at AMC’s Deadquarters on MLK Promenade are busy preparing for a zombie apocalypse! A small army of walking dead will be attending 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, and we’d like these hungry zombies to feel right at home.

As I walked around downtown this morning taking photos, it appeared to me that some of the living dead have already arrived!

In anticipation of rampaging zombies, workers at AMC's Deadquarters on MLK Promendade are applying dirt up the shabby furniture.

This worker is busy applying blood to a file cabinet. Because the walking dead like to feel welcome when they gather around old, dilapidated junk.

A lot of work is required to prepare for your average zombie apocalypse.

I saw this bloody Derry High School bus in the Petco Interactive Zone. Looks to me like it already brought in some zombies. They might be walking around San Diego right now...

Hundreds of bloody zombies walk through city.

teletubby zombies lead assault on san diego

Here’s another batch of photos from yesterday evening’s cool Zombie Walk. The downtown San Diego event began at Childrens Park and proceeded down Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade. As it grew dark, the hungry creatures swarmed up Fifth Avenue through the Gaslamp, where the spectacle entertained Saturday night revelers.

Oh my goodness, here they come now! Teletubby zombies lead the frightening assault!

zombies of every description out for a walk

Yikes! There are hundreds of hungry zombies shuffling along! They’re unstoppable! Seeping blood and torn clothing seem to be the main theme.

zombie walk included a werewolf

I hope the humans over in the Gaslamp are ready to take on more than zombies. I see a werewolf!

dilbert is a bloody zombie

Dilbert thought his coworkers were mindless zombies. Then one day Dilbert became one.

another bloody sexy zombie

The walking dead include a bloody Superman. If the Man of Steel couldn’t stop the zombie plague, then I guess there’s no hope.

Hoardes of walking dead are now very close to San Diego’s Gaslamp. It’s not going to be pretty.

Well, I guess the zombies aren’t hungry for the red sauce served at the Spaghetti Factory. They’re after something else! Bye–gotta run!

Photos of zombies attacking San Diego park.

a bride zombie approaches the city park

The San Diego Zombie Walk took place last evening. The spooky Halloween season event was staged at Childrens Park, across Harbor Drive from the Convention Center. I got some photos!

Zombies could be seen converging on the park from every direction. There seemed to be no stopping them.

Here comes an undead bride in her blood-splattered bridal gown. Pedestrians have fled every which way!

This towering, bloody butcher has nearly captured a helpless victim. Everyone in downtown San Diego surely heard the lady’s blood-curdling scream of terror!

miserable zombies seem quite decayed

The walking dead, some of them terribly decayed and disfigured, gathered in the park with a singular purpose. To feast on flesh!

nasty zombies out to eat your flesh

Some of these zombies might smile, but don’t let it fool you. The one in the cowboy hat is about to get a surprise!

zombie chefs want a kiss of fresh blood

It might be a good idea to NOT kiss these zombie chefs. Looks awfully unsanitary.

zombie family poses by fountain

What a nice zombie dad, zombie girl and zombie mom. The latter can’t seem to take her zombie fingers from her zombie phone.

This sweet, loving couple would like to meet new friends. And so would their chainsaw.
