Burning Man 2013 | Mutant Vehicles

Being in Black Rock City for a whole week this year was a completely different experience from our 3 night visit last year. Now nothing will be the same as your first but we also camped with 7 virgin Burners so that was as close as we could get!

The mutant vehicles on the playa are always incredible. Our first night there we ran into Mr. Octopus, whom we had the pleasure of meeting last year as well.

He was shooting fire to the rhythm of the Soul Train nearby; so fabulous for our first night!

Of course we made multiple sunrise visits to Robot Heart. Love the vibe and the deep house beat coming from him!

Some vehicles were fun to see.

Some were more interactive.

All were transformed at night. This year I made the conscious decision that I would experience the playa more than document it. At the time it was glorious, but now of course I wish I had taken more pics. But even if I had taken pictures 24-7 I think I would still want more pics because any single picture just doesn't do the experience justice. So it's all good.

The Man had just burned this time last week and I (and my fellow Burners) still can't stop thinking/talking/dreaming about it. Bear with me as many more posts will be to follow.

Great shots. The second year is magical… but no less so than your fifth, eighth, 10th. Every year builds on your previous experiences.
