This is just a single photo series that i thought deserved a stand-alone, even though my camera phone isn’t great, especially in low light, so i did not do the moment justice — and that’s kind of the point of discouraging heavy photo-snapping on the playa. If you’re experiencing it through your lens / screen, then you’re no longer directly experiencing it … but I digress.

Anyhow, we were at a dance club, when off to my right i saw these jellyfish: fabric, inflated, illuminated, each one held aloft by a single person. I didn’t get a great look at the design, I suspect that the poles lofting each of them may have served double duty as inflation air delivery pathway, but that is pure speculation.

The larger point is these things were gorgeous and a lot of fun, and they passed toward and right by us, with one of them going directly overhead.

Music, food, dogs, current/political events, and visual arts combine to command much of the portion of attention not ceded to ecological concerns. Also Monty Python. I've sold a few pieces of original art and have made cab fare home playing saxophone. Native Mainah
