dancing around the fire - burning man 2012

A large and compact crowd reaches the fire line and runs around circle.­

At that moment, the real danger is that many people people pushing from outside (to get closer to the fire) are causing those inside to be pressed towards the danger zone of the fire, which is still very hot.­

That's why i don't like to be there, near the fire, when the crowd is dense and uncontrolled.­ So I battled my way out, and returned a bit later.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
