    This one has such a special quality all to itself, which goes beyond photography or even imagery for that. I’m reminded of the burning man festival, though to me it captures the intent and spirit of burning man more so than the festival. Pure celebration of spirit. Not a hint of the photographer and that is a good thing I think.
