I was writing something about nomads and baobabs, and the analogy between the legend about how baobabs used to wander the earth on their roots -- like nomads. One day God got sick of them incessantly relocating and moving and he planted them all upside down, with their roots up towards the sky and their branches as roots. Since then, they remain sedentary.
I realized, though, that I don't have a single photo of a baobab, so I mixed up this one to compensate :)
A camping group - six of us shared this tent structure. Justin, Ryan, Merci, Cobi, Floor, Jules in front, with lil' WC.
We slept in tents beneath a canvas-covered carport, beneath parachutes. Six of us.
We camped at 2:45 and walk-in, which basically means we camped where there weren't any cars or RVs. We had to walk or bike about a quarter mile to our campsite from the perimeter of the packed city. It was worth it! We could sit out on our porch, and look at the stars, or the lights of the city. We had a piss bucket thirty feet away and our nearest neighbor was about another quarter mile away or so. Privacy! Desert Villa style! All Ryan's idea.
Cars loaded up with canned food, futons, tents, parachutes, puppets, bikes and salvaged carpet.
in loving punishment
p.s. it should be noted, that for time reasons - and because I have a sh*tload of credits I need to use up* - the base of this illustration was purchased off istockphoto. i never like to take credit for work I don't do! I did do all the editing beyond that though obviously... adding ryan in there & the text & the fancy picnic tablecloth bg. aww yaa!
*let me know if you want me to buy you something. seriously, about 181 credits are about to go to waste.
Wandering around inside the old Esprit store. Behind Ryan was a guy salvaging old metal parts. He didn't wave back; we didn't enquire.
Ryan and Merci inspect a fallen tree laden with pinecones near the abandoned Esprit store.
Animental made their processsion onto the (former AC transit bus converted to run on veggie oil) travelling performance bus, I climbed the ladder to view the performance from above.
Souris gathered a crew of us to take a bus out to The Salt Lick - so fun!
