Things have changed quite a bit since 1995, when I first went to Burning Man and ran around shooting photos. Now there is Wi-Fi on the Playa, Digital SLR’s have become much more affordable, camera batteries last longer and CF/SD card storage capacity has increased, while the price has dropped. Currently my day job prevents me from going to Burning Man (I went for 8 years, one of these days I’ll go back), but with streaming video and photo uploads from Black Rock City, it’s possible to get an idea of what this year’s event is like as it unfolds.
Here are some of the photos that have been coming in from Burning Man 2006:

I’ll be posting more links throughout the weekend as people upload their photos.
Also, check out Dr. Fabio’s excellent photo series “My Wish for the Future”, a question that The Mind Shaft Society has been asking Burning Man participants this year.
