Here is my camp.
I used the same parachute for shade as before. Just bought 12 PVC couplers and reused the old pipes. Use the longer and stronger water pipe couplers, not the short electric conduit kind. The wind was not bad this year so I never furled it and never even got around to lashing the joints. I did drive extra rebar stakes on the windward side though. I used the official orange plastic rebar caps to avoid leg wounds, they are pretty cheap and better than plastic bottles.
After last year's startling wind speed claims I brought an American Kestrel pocket wind meter. The highest speed that I ever measured was just 24 miles per hour, and I doubt that it ever got much higher.
Looking for Carrots
(Not sure about the title of this work)
By Zachary Coffin. A 21,000 pound granite boulder set atop a bearing. It was placed with the aid of a special crane.
Many people did not get it and thought that it was for climbing on. It's inertia was pretty large but once moving it spun pretty easily. I got it up to 25 RPM by myself and I think it could go faster.
The Emerald stage at night.
Just another standard Man picture.
The Temple of Memory
By David Best and Jack Haye
You know those plywood dinosaur bones sold in expensive toy stores? This is where the scraps went. It burned quite well.
The Man in 3-D
The Man in the daytime as an anaglyph. To see the stereo effect you need to wear your red-blue 3-D glasses.

Most of a horse strung together on rebar.
Solar Powered Corn
In the daytime the solar cells in the leaves charge the battery. At night the ears light up in shifting patterns; each kernel is lit separately.
The Man at night
A 30 second exposure of The Man at night in between gusts. The strange blue halo is from the neon light bouncing off the dust specks.
By Tony Rousamaniere
A three dimensional maze. You crawl around, up and down, through secret doors and puzzles. Very cool. It was better than The Maze.
The monolith from "2001, a space odyssey". Unlike some other monoliths this one actually measures 12 x 22 x 32.
I did not waste any film on other nak ed people. Once you have seen your first 5,000 they are just not that interesting anymore.
I did make this formal self portrait though.
Made of springs. Coated with playa dust.
By Dana and Flash.
I bought a parking meter on eBay and set it up in the middle of nowhere. It was just so ironic and stuff. I used GPS to note it's position of 40° 45.486' N 119° 13.709' W in case I were to forget where to find it again but this proved unnecessary. I watched it a while from a distance. People would trek all the way over to see what it was and all they found was a parking meter. About half took pictures. Some people actually put in money. I collected four quarters, one nickel, one dime, and a 3 volt MnO2-Li cell. I regret to report that the battery did not work; it just fell through. At night it bore a red glow stick to ward off dragons and other dangers, nothing bad happened to it.
By Michael Christian
A headless creature with plant-like legs. 42 feet high.
A radio controlled robot equipped with a great claw and a flamethrower. At night it battled the Tesla coil and destroyed a helpless sheet of plywood.
By Jericho Reese and the Bike Rodeo. A Ferris Wheel for two people. One sits on the bottom while the other climbs up and sits on the top. Seat belts on! Then they peddle.
By Ben Niebauer.
Temple of WaterBoy 4.0
By Marque Comblatt
Donate a gallon of water to WaterBoy.
I carried no camera on the night of The Burn. 200 foot high synchronized pillars of fire don't look the same on film and I did not want to watch them through a little viewfinder. You just had to have been there.
Most of the titles I have taken from the descriptions on the Burning Man web pages. I hope that I have matched the pictures with the right names but if you do notice any errors feel free to correct me.
