Playa repairs

Here I'm shooting a friend weld back on broken pieces from the camps fire tree, which operated at night. Night time fires proved to be both beautiful & functional, as the temperatures were often pretty chilly.

While setting up camp, came across this old dusty chair, so perfectly contrasted against the stark desert features. The first "art installation" I saw out there, and one of the more memorable.

from dust, to dust
9/8/2015 - Black Rock City, NV
I'm cutting ahead to the very last shot from the Burn, the last sunset, after a long day of breaking down camp, packing gear, and LNT cleanup.
Many have seen all the glittering magic which happens during the Burn, but I've been honestly more excited to share the beauty of the stillness this place holds when people have returned the space to nature.

Aloha IG friends, hope this finds you all well & on many exciting photographic adventures.
After a little break, (which I like to take from time to time so as to refresh mind & perspective) I'll be posting some shots from a recent month long adventure in the desert.
Got to work with the super rad crew which designed & built this years Burning Man Temple, which led to some really special perspectives, experiences, and friendships. Hard work, under sometimes very challenging circumstances, but incredibly rewarding.
So, here's the first... a shot of the Playa, well before the Burners arrived for the events festivities.
Cheers for now, I'm looking forward to getting caught up with all your work.

"I was sent from the Power...
I am the honored and the scorned,
I am the harlot and the holy one.
I am the incomprehensible silence and the much-remembered thought." Excerpted from Thunder: Perfect Mind, found within The Nag Hammadi library texts

"Raise your quality standards as high as you can live with, avoid wasting your time on routine problems, and always try to work as closely as possible at the boundary of your abilities. Do this, because it is the only way of discovering how that boundary should be moved forward." -Edsger W. Dijkstra
