From Dawn 'Til Dusk
Friday's are a visceral buzz of activity. The constant boom of competing sound-systems has somehow grown louder (hard to believe that's possible, but it's true.) For those who party, the options are endless.
In the 18 years that I've been attending this event, it has of course evolved. Just as each of us who co-create Burning Man have grown and changed, so has Black Rock City.
Since my first Burn in 2000, the population has nearly quadrupled. As those numbers have swelled, I've grown into much more of a 'day Burner', meaning – I sleep at night and generally rise with the sun. Earplugs are my best friend.
I've also noticed a clear pattern over these nearly two decades; the dust-storms are much worse from Thursday onward. I'll be drafting another post solely dedicated to my dustiest images.
