If you haven't informed the BR Bijou people, do so.

(Yeah, yeah, eplaya, you post something quasi-informational, and you get the third degree on some odd variant of the 10 principles.)

It is a lovely shot.

First thing I did when the Smithsonian notified me, was contact the BM press team and the Bijou team, both gave the okay. :)

And thanks for the compliment!

Thank you for doing the right thing, and I like to give artists their due, because this world likes to fuck with artists.

There's another Burning man photo in the contest. Mobile category #6.

It is a photogenic place. Wish my aunt, who is really a gifted photographer, could see it.

Congrats! I just saw that in a gallery on the Atlantic and knew it had to be from the event.
