While the title here is Weird People on the Playa, not all the people pictured here are actually weird. Some are, but some are just kind of strange. Some of the people are dressed inappropriately well for the desert, some are in fetish outfits, and some are just plain weird.

Because of the nature of these photographs, the vivid black and red of the Burning Man seemed inappropriate, so we show these photographs in the usual, civilized colors of The Civilized Explorer Web site.
