Kicking the Flare

Daily Photo – Kicking the Flare

These big installations by Black Burner Project looked awesome at Burning Man this year. An absolute stand out piece of art. Can’t wait to see what they do next year.

Serene Smile

Daily Photo – Serene Smile

There are so many art pieces at Burning Man that inspire me and this was a simple and beautiful one with a serene smile. I try to spend at least 8 hours a day out there taking photos. It’s really quite exhausting riding my bike all over creation to try to see everything. This doesn’t make me the most social person during that time because I’m kind of on a one-man mission to find things that inspire me.

The Journey Home

Daily Photo – The Journey Home

It’s been a few months now since I left NZ to head to the US for the first time in YEARS. It’s been quite a crazy time but awesome to finally see the family, friends and there was that Burning Man thing too. Now though I’m starting to edge towards returning home. Last week I was in the Bahamas before a short stop in NYC for a friend’s birthday. Now it’s a case of beginning the slow trek home. Hopefully with a few photography stops along the way.

Overlooked

Daily Photo – Overlooked

I was trying to find this image for a little project, something for Nat Geo, and it turned out not to be in my Smugmug but was on Flickr… which means it may never have made it to the blog! So here it is, a fun shot from Tokyo with the X1D as a little palate cleanser before more Burning Man images.

Nerding Out

Daily Photo – Nerding Out

On the night of the Temple burn, I went way out into the deep playa to get a photo. I do this pretty much every year now… well, 5 out of the last 11. Anyway, I was out there by myself and I saw another photographer show up. That is rare! And so I chatted him up – nice German fellow… I asked him why he was out so far away from the event. And he said, I’m trying to get a Trey Ratcliff shot! And I was like, well that guy is a hack… and then I told him and we had a sweet hug and nerded out on camera stuff while taking photos…

An angel on the playa just after sunset a few days after the burn. We took a break from cleaning up to head out and take a few photos with these cool angel wings designed by Sean French.

Circling the Creation

Daily Photo – Circling the Creation

Here is yet another one of Michael Benisty’s amazing creations. It’s the first one I saw before I even knew he had three out there. I circled it several times, mesmerized, before taking a photo.
