Perfect timing! And, see what happens after the guy says "If we didn't burn the Man,..."! Great shot!
We were watching this from a platform on top of a container on Portal Road East [road in to Center Camp], just set back a little from the Esplanade.
Fireworks during the Man Burn. We were watching this from a platform on top of a container on Portal Road East [road in to Center Camp], just set back a little from the Esplanade.
The Man was closing at 10pm Friday so he could be filled with fireworks. We got there at the last minute [we thought he was closing at 11], and I got some awesome, up-close video.
It turns out we were the last ones allowed in, and I was the last one inside, under the Man. I'm thankful they allowed us in, as I hadn't seen him up close yet!
