Lost & Found: are these YOUR Burning Man 2009 pics? Claim your lost camera now!

December 13, 2009

As you can imagine, all kinds of things get lost at Burning Man. (Yes, it’s ok–you can imagine all those things that get lost there–have fun!)

I remember some post-Burn event I attended one year that featured a HUGE pile of car keys. I picked up a set of Toyota keys with a bottle opener. The keys didn’t work in my Toyota but the bottle opener did its job.

I’d hate to lose my camera out there–but people do every year. And other people find them and turn them in to Playa Info who takes care of Lost and Found from Burning Man and SF Decompression. They then post a sampling of images to help people get matched back up.

This first guy is obviously praying to get something lost back…and whoever took this second image must have lost the camera AFTER visiting the Temple. And the final couple we can see went to the Man at night before he Burned during a dust storm (that’s what’s producing that hazy quality).

So, follow the flickr link below and peruse the images; see if you recognize anyone. Maybe you didn’t lose a camera, but you might recognize someone who did:

  • Did you lose a camera?
  • Did you lose just a camera card?
  • Maybe a whole bag or backpack with a camera inside?

Immediately, visit this Flickr Set to see twenty-four web photo pages of Burning Man images because this is a limited time offer! If you spot yours, email lostandfound (at) burningman (dot) com and include:

  • The camera/card or bag inventory number
  • A description of the make and model of the lost camera/card, or bag.
  • A description of other (non-posted) images from the same source.

Or just visit these images to see what random people found interesting at Burning Man.

Remember: They’ll be GONE by January 13th, 2010. (I’m curious–aren’t you?) So check them out soon! Oh, just so you know–there’s no naughty bits showing in any of the pictures on-line–just lots of smiling, dusty every day Burners!

    I lost my camera on Sat morning 2009 burn. It is a Canon, older and slightly larger model, I think a 7.1 mega pix but not 100% sure. The 1st pic was of my dad holding a pair of flippers on a boat. There were pictures of Yosemite, then the burn. I am in many of the pics and am tall and blond. My hair was long some days short others, and also had a multi colored burgandy yarn hair clips. It would mean the world to get those pics back. The camera was in a small brown and black designed cloth bag with some altoids and lip gloss and another memory card.
