It’s photo Friday for me where I put out a blog that is long on photography and short (or at least shorter) on words. I’ve been concentrating on Burning Man the past several weeks and will continue for a few more. I have my ticket for 2017 so I am excited. Hopefully next week, we will get a ticket for Peggy as well.
Having tackled the giant women of Burning Man, I’ve been thinking about what to feature next on Burning Man sculptures. Like mutant vehicles, there are so many it is difficult to choose and even harder to organize. I started by going through my photo library and picking out a few I thought might be of interest. That got me down to 1500. I think you can see my problem. “Okay, Curt, focus!” I admonished as I scrolled through the 1500 photos for the third time.
There are categories, sort of. They are totally arbitrary and from my perspective. But it’s a start. So today, I am going to feature what I find humorous, whimsical and weird, recognizing that the three are often combined in my mind. There are enough here that I will be presenting more over the weekend.
Tomorrow’s Blog: More humorous, whimsical, and weird Burning Man sculptures.

I couldn’t help wondering if that blue dog was influenced by the famous “Blue Dog” paintings” of George Rodrigue. It certainly brought his work to mind in a flash, and suggested that there might be a connection. The Blue Dog was used so widely in advertising campaigns that it certainly was known beyond Louisiana.
It’s certainly possible, Linda. The color is right. I first came across the “Blue Dog” in Carmel, California where Rodrigue also has a gallery. I was immediately attracted to the dog, which was based on a terrier/spaniel mix named Tiffany that had been a family pet. (I think the Burning Man dog is more of a hound.) –Curt
Fun pics. Thanks.
I had fun with the post, Peggy. I am having even more with tomorrow’s. –Curt
I enjoy whimsical!
Me too, and weird. 🙂 –Curt
One can never have enough big-bosomed bees but my you’ve chosen some other corkers!
A whole cast of them, AC. 🙂 –Curt
Burning Man rules!
Forever strange! 🙂
I just love the dog’s family!
It would be a fun family to have, Alison. –Curt
Yup, weird and whimsical they are, and I think someone or some people had fun crocheting that bra. I hope Peggy gets her ticket.
More to come, Timi. Tomorrow it’s the aliens… And, yes, I am really rooting for my buddy. –Curt
Wow these are wonderful! Heheh, the bee’s really “menacing”! LOL
Wouldn’t want to meet her on a dark night. 🙂 “You can have your honey, Honey!” –Curt
Juan Miro and Salvador Dali would’ve been delighted to see all this “stuff”… 🙂
Kong and the Sound Man win my vote in this post. Although I’d love to have my picture taken beside just about any of these creations. I’m also noticing a pre-occupation with big boobs. Just saying.
That Big Boob phenomena is obvious, Rusha. 🙂 The guys don’t get equal time. Peggy complains about that on occasion. Maybe it’s an Earth Mother type of place. I suspect other motivation. –Curt
