Again, my pictures from Burning Man weren’t that great: I took the cheap camera in case it succumbed to the dust, and didn’t even take it with me on the Playa at night. Anyway, I knew that other people would take better cameras, better pictures and find a better way to share them on the Inter Webs. Sure enough, there’s a Photographers ‘Pool’ up on Flickr, which as of this time of writing has 381 members and 2,263 photos. Pull up a chair and start that slide show.
In particular, we loved this cat car: it was about the first vehicle we saw on the Playa on our first evening, and it was busy turning its head and its tail and meowing. We were fascinated. We’d only been looking at it for a minute when a double-decker pulled up alongside and a 12-piece funk band started playing from the top deck. (They were good, too.) As a crowd gathered, the cat got all pissed: it meowed and growled and hissed and then, recognizing it had lost the battle for attention, lowered its head, turned on its heels and crawled away, into the desert.
