Burning Man

So it's been awhile since I've posted and a lot has gone on. Most of August was spent moving, packing and being busy with work. At the end of August was Burning Man. I was excited because my brother was coming out and we were going to have a great time together. This was my third year, and certainly not my best. About halfway though I became sick and drained of energy. I couldn't really eat or move and slept a lot. So Thursday morning we decided to go back to Winnemucca for the weekend. I felt bad for taking my brother away from seeing the man burn but we had a great time hanging out in Winnemucca.

And it being my third year, things out there almost seemed normal. I didn't come away with to many great shots. I did take a picture of the most absurd thing I wandered into. It was a couple having a playa wedding (only for the week of Burning Man). The girl was on stilts, so the guy was up on a ladder. That was funny, but then afterwards there was a reception party. A random guy sat down and started playing ragtime as these people on stilts were dancing twenty feet in the air and then two of the girls started scatting with amazing alto and soprano voices.

Wednesday night I didn't even go out, I managed to sleep through the night in the worlds largest party. It did let me wake up for sunrise and see the man in the morning.

I checked in on the webcam occasionally and it looked like it got a lot windier and dustier as the week went on. I'm still waiting for some good pictures of the man and temple burning.
