These are my two hilarious roommates. +Jonatas Eridani from Brazil on the left and +Rene Smith from New Zealand on the right. We have honestly never laughed as hard as we did in that week. It's also fun that they are both photographers so it there are a lot of common interests that keep us jazzed up all the time.

This was a fun surprise! This is my friend Karla (https://www.instagram.com/karlakuhlm/ ) she screamed in delight when she saw me! That doesn't always happen, so it kind of stuck in my head. This was back on Day 1 when everyone was arriving at their camps. She was one of the women you might remember from that "EARTH" photo from a few years ago... it's up there in my Burning Man portfolio towards the top.

The temple burns the past away as they embrace. I've shared this work from Michael Benisty a few different ways. I'm working on one last one now... might be the final photo I post from Burning Man 2018 when I am done... probably a welcome thing to hear to people that follow me that think Burning Man is STUPID (believe me, there are a lot... you would not believe the upset emails and messages I get - but keep sending them, I don't really care. You would be AMAZED how little I care, in fact). Anyway, this art is called "In every lifetime I will find you.

Here's another photo of the giant puppets (with a full size train for scale). It reminds me that some of the best ideas for art out there are the most simple: Giant Human Puppets, Enormous Mirror Ball, Green Tree, Dock, Moon.

Ahhhh - one of my favorite art pieces! These two giant marionettes would walk and talk everywhere. The girl's name is Euterpe and she was at Burning Man last year. This time, she brought her grandfather, Alberto. Here, she was walking around the playa with him showing him al the other art. They did all sorts of things together. They even went out into the playa and had a silent funeral where they would kneel and lay flowers on the ground. Everyone there also silently kneeled. Everyone seems to have an emotional response to these two. The official art work is called "Step Forward - Joining Minds" by: Miguel Angel Martin Bordera, founder of Carros de Foc from San Vicente del Raspeig, Alicante, Spain. From their statement: "[The marionettes] are the young Euterpe, example of self-acceptance, and her grandfather Alberto, who shares interesting experiences and accumulated knowledge."
