Burning Man/San Pedro Cactus in Bloom/Restored Railway Caboose/Tough Ford Van

At Caffe Roma (in North Beach), my friend Rod Freebairn-Smith brought his Mac laptop to where I was sitting and turned on a 240-photo slide show for me, of this year's Burning Man. It was spectacular. It captured the event, the people, and the constructions way better than anything I've seen.

I just downloaded some photos from my pocket (Olympus Stylus 800) camera here in the cafe. Here are a few random shots:

Restored caboose I shot last night in Duncan Mills along the Russian River
