this is one of the first pictures i shot in black rock city. it took a while to get over how strange the terrain is. a month before burning man, the place was under water.
as the ground gets trampled on, the top layer breaks and forms super fine dust, which eventually gets everywhere (including inside your plastic bins inside your tent). somehow the dust got to our sausage, which was double-wrapped in paper in a cooler in the tent. after a bad dust storm, the ground is again different. it was fun to go out on the playa and ride bikes over un-broken top layer.
