Back from the desert.
Let’s start my Burning Man 2014 photo postings with an image of the largest piece of art. Embrace was a hollow wooden sculpture with several stories and two staircases inside. Visitors were able to climb up the stairs, pass by giant hearts and eventually make it all the way into the heads to look out of its eyes.
On Friday morning shortly after sunrise burners came together to burn it down in a giant fire. It’s gone.
Because English is not my first language, I occasionally look up words in the dictionary to get a full understanding. I noticed how the meaning of the word ‘embrace’ can be stretched in different ways. I really liked how all the meanings describe what Burning Man is all about: hug, include, welcome, accept, surround, adopt
Burning Man end of this month. I’m looking forward to all this out of this world craziness. Where all the things your brain has learned and memorized simply don’t apply.
How did I get to photograph Bliss Dance from such an elevated spot? I was circling it on a giant golden dragon. Duh! That was right before jumping off and getting lost in a dust storm. Which sucked, but on the other hand helped me to hide from a herd of unicorns that humped everyone who got in their way.
Anybody who has ever looked at my blog for longer than a second should have noticed that I post photos in no particular order whatsoever. The whole idea behind this pulling-random-photos-out-of-the-hat thing is to keep us (you and me) entertained.
I for my part enjoy going back in time revisiting interesting moments by spending time on a picture (this one is from Burning Man last year). So what's in for you? I kind of hope it has a bit of a surprise element every time you see something new of my stuff popping up. But actually, I don't really have an idea how it's perceived on your end.
