Do you have pictures from the heat the Street Faire, or do you know of a good website that does?

One would think that the people who got to participate in this event, are either still asleep, drunk, stoned or even at work right now. Or all of the above. My guess is that pictures will start popping up in a day or two once the haze has drifted.

I am at work, sore from too much dancing, hoarse from shouting in order to have the wonderful, meaningful conversations I had with so many last night/afternoon, and in posession of that attitude of WHATEVAH that broadcasts to everyone at my workplace that I had more fun than they did last night. I have about 5 pictures of not much more than myself and a friend or two and no way to download them at work. Wait a day or three and they'll start to show up...

At work also. Hung over. Exhausted. I don't feel decompressed.

Okay, one for us that weren't there.

How was it?

Anything super-cool?

How long was your trip to get there?

I performed on the Cocomo stage last night. It was a very positive vibe, good sound and lots of dancing sweaty folks. I think they'd have danced the Hokey Pokey if we played it, because the energy was so high.

Beautiful art all around, fire, installations, excellent music. Sort of like BM, but you get to go home and sleep in your bed afterward.

I didn't go to BM this year, but I definitely got that Burn feeling yesterday.

My perspective,


(Oh, my trip to get there was about 25 minutes.) :)

I had a blast, and am exhausted.

I haven't developed my film yet, and I haven't even scanned my photos from the actual Burning Man yet, so who knows when I'll get them online.

Hopefully in the next week or so.

I'm so glad my title is "photographer" and not "Scanning Web Guy"

Decompression was great, loved the industrial backdrop provided by the Dogpatch neighborhood, very surreal with all the fire, costumes, shadows. Not the desert though... Didn't take any pictures, but looking forward to seeing all of yours!

Decompression was off the hook. I had the most stressed out year at BM this year so the street faire really helped me reconnect with the fam. It was great to be so social. Rock on Burners! :P
