The Dock in the Desert
So I just got done sitting in Burning Man traffic for most of the day with +Tom Anderson
. They "pulse" the traffic out, so you basically put the car in park for an hour at a time. It gave us even more time after a nice Burning Man to talk in the RV. Like last time, the conversation involved everything from art to philosophy to music to economics to the internet. (Did you know he's a singer that used to have a band? It gave me a chance to ask him all sorts of strange musical questions... among other things...)
Anyway, a few days ago we were biking along the desert and came to this dock. I had taken the photo on a preceding evening and I had already showed it to him... as we rode around it, he tried to figure out where I took the shot... We came back to this spot in the daytime and he was having trouble picturing it... lamenting that he did not think it possible to get this same shot. I told him of course he could... and we spent a long time going to and fro across the desert with our cameras, capturing different things...
...so, to me, the big question is, which photo
will we soon see from Tom and his new Nikon? _(he would post his photos anyway... just building a bit of social peer excitement for the grand unveiling of his first photo... very exciting to engage in a new artform, yes? yes...)
