It's a portrait sort of day.

For at least the last decade, Burners have called this day 'Tutu Tuesday'. I've rarely taken part, but I do find it amusing how many people participate.

This set is, as you can see – very people-heavy. Apparently I've mostly been drawn to the humans that populate the city, more than the art that graces it. Again – I may add more to this post as the week progresses.

Curious to see how the rest will unfold.


The first two in this series can be viewed here:

Such a marvelous series of photos! I am amazed (as always) at the sharp eye you have for capturing magical and unique perspectives. My favorite shots here are the woman with the basket on her head, the woman sitting beside her bicycle, and the giant statue in the final shot. The first shot of people leaping is great, too.

Years ago during the golden era of MySpace, I was connected to someone who attended Burning Man every year and had some really cool shots of the artwork and goings-on in Black Rock City. I looked forward to his photos each year after the event. Your shots are definitely more artistic, though, with your keen eye and great care pumped into the composition of each and every one! Many kudos for these slices-of-life on the playa! 💙

You know – I think you'd truly enjoy this event. Maybe it's been calling to you all these years. ;)

Your faves are some of my faves, too – all those you mentioned share a certain, undefinable quality – a certain quiet grace. <3

This series is so frickin' awesome! Really great job! Every one of them is so interesting. Resteemed!

·

Thank you, so much! 😍 I’m so glad you’re enjoying this series. ⭐️

Really great to see new Burning Man pics...:) always awesome and feel the joy of find people like this, all together... i wonder if the world one day could be similar :)

·

I’ve been asking that question for almost two decades. This event has certainly given me hope — it’s why I made a book for the littlest Burners, as I believe they’ll be the architects of a better future....if we’re so lucky.

😊 heheh always best wishes for awesome people 🍀😊 thanks one more i really enjoyed them ✨

I haven't been since 2007 and these pictures make me want to goooooooooooooo

·

Come back, come back! It’s tiiime. 🤗

It is a great tribute to the great event. Well done, I enjoyed your photographs a lot!

Cheers, @blastik! 🙌🏼

How lovely! Thanks so much! ⭐️

I'm very new to steemit and I'm struggling to find quality photography so far (maybe you can help me?) This post is the best I've found so far. I like the first image and all the others. The one with the huge naked lady statue and all the bikes is my favorite, it's awesome.

The colour pallete so reflects the desert setting, great work. :)

Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad you enjoyed these! And, I understand – the #photography tag is quite the disappointment. Check out #photofeed, #photomag & #photocontests. There are more, but those are good places to start. ;) tip!
