It was another awesome Burning Man for 2014. This year’s theme was Caravansary which kept the Man simple but yet the tallest Man ever erected. The actual burn of the Man took forever because they built that thing so well!
It was my third year and every year is always exciting and different. It was also interesting to go back to back as I went last year but my first time was back in 2007. I love the culture and experience of it all. One of my favorite things about being there is just connecting to people. I love to just wander and explore and just have conversations with strangers. The conversations that exist there with people you just meet are beyond what you could ever imagine. Its incredible and I wish it was as easy to have that opportunity every day.
It was also super cool to be contacted by Djoke and Richard to be their wedding photographer beforehand! I would love to go back every year to photograph a wedding there. Hint hint for my fellow Burners!
One thing that was different for me this year was the fact that most of these photos were actually taken with the Olympus OMD EM-5. I had a 12mm, 24mm, and a 45mm lens and it was so much lighter than carrying my DSLR everywhere I went!
