Bobbies on patrol in the desert

This made me chuckle. In the UK we have a very distinctive Polive uniform. It’s quite an old design, with the funny shaped helmet harking back to the days when a robber might try to bash the local bobby over the head with a stick. It’s also designed for the (usually) cool UK climate.

The idea of two guys in full police uniform riding around the desert at Burning Man really tickled me…

”Ello ‘ello ‘ello, what’s going on ‘ere then?’
‘It’s a mutual massage tent officer.’
‘Do you have a license to do that in public madam?’ 😀

More pictures by the same photographer of Burning Man 2005 here. They’re some of the best I’ve seen, and the Temple of Dreams at the bottom really needs to be seen to be believed (like dreams, I guess). They build such a thing of beauty in a week then burn it down on the last day.
