Burning Man 2006

Black Rock Desert, Nevada

Digital exposers from my trip to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. We found a city there and some nonsense about burning a man (not sure what all that is about) on the way there we stopped at some natural hot springs and on the way home jolted ourselves back to reality at the Manzanar concentration camp for Japanese citizens.
