Trek Into the Black Rock Desert. Burning Man Photowalk
Thought it was time I shared this photo of our #burningmanphotowalk
. I had just arrived on the playa after a whirlwind road trip from Colorado, plopped down my belongings in a Flaming Lotus Girl camp called 'FunTown' in Illumination Village, set up a few necessities so that I didn't have to flounder around in the dark for when I returned (after an anticipated long evening of shooting...once I go out for a shoot, exploring in the desert here it typically goes on til the wee hours...that's one of the great beauties of this place, there simply is no way
you can possibly see and experience everything
and it goes on non stop! So, one learns to live in the moment (possibly having an ultimate direction) but allowing yourself to be carried towards this shiny spectacle to that really awesome outfit to oh wow!
there's a ship floating across the desert to oh what a glorious sunset! There simply is no end to the possibilities here! :)
I gathered my camera bag (I opted not to carry my tripod this trip), nalgene bottle full of some tasty drink, a couple of snacks, goggles, hat, jacket, gloves, head lamp, glow sticks, bandana (attire for both dust storms and the cool desert nights!) hopped on my trusty bicycle and swooped off onto the playa to meet up with this crew!
We wandered around, talked shop and had a lovely evening snapping photos off in to the sunset!
Thank you +Trey Ratcliff
for being such a generous and gracious playa host gathering this gaggle of photogs together on the playa for some epic fun!
