Here’s another photo from this year’s Burning Man. I’m presenting this art not how it appeared on playa. Originally, it was surrounded with a fence of sorts that had cranks to make the mechanical squid move it’s tentacles. It was a pretty time consuming undertaking, but I’m happy with the results. I removed tiny sections at a time in order to keep the realism. The hardest part was recreating the sculpture parts that were hidden.
I’ve been pretty busy the past couple of weeks. This weekend Cher and I did a family photo shoot for some friends of ours. It was really a lot of fun. I have been really reluctant to include families in my photo package offerings, but I may change that note soon. I’ve had several people inquire about it so it might be something to consider as an extra revenue stream.
Thanksgiving is this week in the United States. I really don’t know how I feel about all these holidays anymore. White man (which I am) took this land from the Indians. Then they tried to wipe them out (and did a pretty good job of it) violently and wrongly. I am thankful for what I have, but I’m not proud of how we came about having it.
