NEON WARRIOR – Burning Man 2014

September 15th, 2014, posted in 2014, Burning Man, Nevada

Trey Ratcliff and I were out cruising around one night in Black Rock City and came across this guy. I asked if he would like a proper photo and he was down to get a few. We went over by this art car lined with LED’s and fired away. 45 seconds later we had the one.

VEE

I love walking up to awesomeness at Burning Man. This girl was wearing the same type of visor that I was so we had a silly connection. I asked her for a few photos and she happily obliged.

TAURUS ON PLAYA

Since I began traveling for photography, I would be in a beautiful location and wished Cher and Seth could be there to share the experience with me. Up until now, it just wasn’t possible. But all that has changed now that we have a sweet new (used) RV. We went on our maiden camping trip this weekend and it was really cool. No more bathing out of a 5 gallon bucket at Burning Man. No more overpriced hotels wondering if the sheets were really changed. And best of all, my family gets to see the amazing places I’ve been and am planning to go. Let the adventures begin!

INSIDE THE TEMPLE

Inside the Temple of Juno at Burning Man 2012. Besides the gentle wind coming through the lattice, you could hear a pin drop.

STARPORT 2012

This sculpture called Starport 2012 graced the entrance to Center Camp at Burning Man. It was so cool. At night it lit up with color changing LEDs. I want to build one over my driveway.

THE NORTHERN SPIRE

I’m going Burning Man photo heavy this week because I can feel my ticket getting closer to me. It is really what it is all about. The highs and lows, the uncertainty. The bliss of achievement. When I get back this year, it will be so much sweeter because of the struggle. I’m sad that I can’t bring my family again, though. This ticket mess has not allowed us to plan properly for us all. It is easy with just me. I can load up the Rabbit and fly… but with the family, we’d have to rent a uhaul to bring 3x the amount of bikes and gear, food and water. I think it was meant to be this way, though. I’ve heard that the conditions are going to be super rough this year with the lack of rain. White outs are inevitable. I’d prefer their first experience be more than just survival.

BLACK ROCK ROLLER DISCO

All night, every night, you can get these crazy light paintings at Burning Man. I would just set up at someplace interesting (which was so easy to find) and wait for something weird to go by. This year should be even better. More art installations have been registered than ever before.

TEMPLE UNICORN

I don’t even remember this little filly posing for me, but I’m glad she did! I can feel the energy building for this years burn. I don’t have a ticket yet, but I’m sure there is one out there for me… somewhere.
There are like 300 tix on Stubhub, but that goes against everything that Burning Man is about. I have some new art to bring for gifts and some Public Work shifts I’d like to volunteer for, but it’s really hard to plan when it is still out of my hands. Come on Universe… help a burner out! <3

THE TEMPLE AT SUNSET

Burning Man 2011 was so awesome. I don’t know if I’ll get tickets to this years burn, but that will make any future burns that much more special.

MY BURNING MAN NEIGHBORS

September 14th, 2011, posted in Blog, Burning Man 2011, Nevada

This is one group of my neighbors from Burning Man 2011. They were from Michigan and were all so cool and helpful. They came in this huge green church bus which also served as a great platform for seeing what was going on at the Playa. From left to right are Jane, Kevin, Kate, Jordan and Jesse. They don’t know how much I appreciate them welcoming a virgin burner twice their age and showing me the ropes.

Since getting back to reality, we’ve all friended each other on facebook. It’s really cool how you can do that now. I like being able to keep up with people I can only see once a year. The more I travel, the more diverse my friends list becomes.

I think that is important so you’re not conditioned to one singular way of thinking. Experiencing other peoples environments helps keep your mind open to new and alternative ideas, which then expands into newer ideas still.
