This was the last photo I snapped before my battery died. Perfect in so many ways. Soon after, we broke camp and headed home covered in dust and brimming with memories. Thank you @burningman, it was a wild and crazy week." ~ colinleibold

Each year the quality of the art cars goes up. To watch the line at the DMV (Department of Mutant Vehicles) early in the week will blow your mind at the creativity. Some can drive at night only and others can only go in the day, but all great art. This one is now an old favorite." ~ johntupper

(Part I) 9/14 by Abhigya Shrivastava "The last sunrise to grace The Temple was one of my favorite of the week. We would not stay to watch it burn that evening. Instead, we opted to leave early and catch a sunset bath in Lake Tahoe which was quite refreshing. Our final morning on the playa was bittersweet, but as they say, all good things must come to an end, and then be rebuilt and experienced anew next year." ~ colinleibold

Taiwan to Reno to Playa. "The time I shot this inside the temple was a class slow moving meditative martial arts. Any time it was a good time to visit. At night you would end up with a strip of paper and a pome. I hear it was a clue to some special place on Playa. Clueless, I had no idea. I wonder if you followed your clue and what you ended up with, an experience or an object?" John David Tupper  ~ artonplaya
