Pictures from Burning Man 2009

For those of you who aren't aware of the Burning Man Music Festival, it's an annual event held in the Black Rock Desert, in Northern Nevada that takes its name from the ritual burning of a large wooden effigy on Saturday evening. According to the Festival's website:

"There are no rules about how one must behave or express oneself at this event (save the rules that serve to protect the health, safety, and experience of the community at large); rather, it is up to each participant to decide how they will contribute and what they will give to this community."
It's an experiment in community, radical self expression, and self-reliance. I've been told that it's a little like seeing Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in real life... and with that mysteriously ambiguous introduction, here are some of the pictures:
