Burning Man 2012
As I saw posts on social media from people going to Burning Man next week, I realized that I hadn't gotten through all of my photos from the last time I went, in 2012. Between the heat, the dust and the darkness, the conditions can be challenging for photography, but with hundreds of works of art and mutant vehicles, it's a hotbed of creativity and a riot of color.

In spite of a ban on commercial activity within the event, estimates on the economic impact on Northern Nevada alone ranged from $35 - 44M in 2012 (not including participants' preparations at home). Home Depot, Wal-Mart and many other retail establishments get cleaned out this week, selling building and camping supplies and groceries. +Burning Man 2012

+John Getchel  If it's not the heat, or the dust, some years rain and mud is an issue.  This year apparently it's a massive infestation of bugs!  
It's hard to beat that constant state of amazement you feel at all of the creative, intricate, kinetic, interactive, and sometimes just plain bizarre things that people come up with.  I hope that I have opportunities to return in the future.

Pass on the news!  

This 320-page guide to California from Yosemite south is the latest volume in the popular collection of books by travel guide publisher Laurent Martres, who wrote the first three "Photographing the Southwest" books.  

Hopefully this first book of mine will sell well, so I can start another!

Bernie Sanders at the University of Nevada, Reno
I shot with my Canon DSLR and a 70-200 mm lens in my right hand, while broadcasting a live stream on Periscope via an iPhone in my left hand (great workout).  Pre-event estimates were forecasting 2500 to attend but estimates of actual attendance seem to range from 4000-5000, and Periscope said that 2717 more tuned in to the live broadcast from my iPhone! 

Although some recent comprehensive polls show Bernie ahead of all other presidential candidates from any party, apparently many states have closed primary or caucus primary elections, and you can't vote for a candidate like Bernie unless you register as a Democrat in time for the primary phase of the elections.  Take out moderate Republicans who want to see Citizens united repealed, and Hillary leads Bernie among Democratic-only voters, so voter restrictions in the primaries could eliminate popular candidates like Bernie and Trump before they reach the general election unless supporters make sure that they're registered in the party of the candidate they are most likely to support, and they vote in the primary election.

It was the first time that I've attended a political speech +Barbara Matthews (although I saw Ronald Reagan speak at the STS-4 Space Shuttle landing in the early 1980s).  It's frustrating that +Bernie Sanders has the platform that best aligns with mainstream America, but the media treats him like a leper.  They know that he is the ONLY candidate who won't have superPACs spending millions on advertising.
