The pre-Burn on Monday required replacing the Man. This video was shot on Thursday as the new Man was reassembled.
Jeff and his flaming train horns. As you can see by one bystander's reaction, they are loud.
Fire dancers delighted the crowd.
A still shot of the dancers.
Another photo of the performance.
A video of the approach to a mirrored figure from Michael Emery's "Where did you go?"
The Temple of Forgiveness was incredibly intricate.
The Man being erected and the lights tested.
We watched the Burn from a platform some distance away, and we had our own private spinner performing for us.
The guy had just told me the hen had laid an egg that morning when you hear me saying, "Did she?"
We were very happy to see the water truck spraying the road during a dust storm to abate the dust.
One of the several dust storms to blow through. I would not take my camera out (this is from the Fujifilm F30) when the storm was at its worst - you could not see across the street to that other flag when the dust was at its height.
This is on Tuesday, after the Monday storm had blown through.
The Monday storm lasted long into the night, and our tent offered no reistance to the dust.
We slept in the van while the wind seems to have blown into our tent and left playadust drifts around boxes.
A wonderful performance by a prancing pony girl.
