Awesome Earth People
Big Cities and Little 'uns
I go to Burning Man every year to refresh, recharge, and get inspired by the sheer randomness and light of it all. It's the one place you go where you have no idea what you're going to see, but you know it's going to be awesome and interesting.
Burning Man, Nevada
This is perhaps the most-awesome and least-visited place in Paris. Everyone goes to the Eiffel, Arc-de-Triomph, Louvre, Orsay, etc, etc, but who would take time to visit the Museum of Evolution? Just me and other cool geeks like me. I had a hot tip from a friend that said, “If Jules Verne were to design a museum, he would make this”. Say no more, I was there immédiatement!
I woke up with a dead rabbit beside me.
I know this isn't the sort of thing one wants to hear when looking at this timeless and Hawking-esque beauty, but it is the strange truth.
I arrived at sunset at this remote and beautiful church in the middle of the south island of New Zealand. There were quite a few people milling about, taking countless mobile-phone photos of themselves holding the church in their little fingers or using selfie-sticks. I think they are just perhaps making a visual diary, or trying to create a story of themselves, which is fine and okay.
My plan was to stay late and sleep outside. I had my sleeping bag and my friend Stu was there (who had his own sleeping bag, I should add). We set up our bags by the church, had a few glasses of wine, put on some music, and talked about nonsensical things and laughed into the night. Around 3 AM, my alarm went off, so I slipped out of my bag to capture this scene. The next morning the supine rabbit appeared between Stu and me. We were bewildered and laughing.
