The Nautilus car is a reimagining of the Jules Verne Nautilus Submarine for the Burning Man festival.

It is covered with delicious details. When I commented that having a linkage so that the rudder actually turns was 'over the top'
the response was 'as opposed to the rest of the car which is not over the top?'

This was taken the day before the car was intended to be loaded up. Lots of folks were crawling over and into her.

They fitted the harpoon gun while I was there. A phantasmigal creation which they took care to make sure was properly
counterweighted so that a person could control and aim it. I don't think it 'does' anything, except to delight the senses
and incite the imagination.

I put a Luma Lite flash on the camera. It will be better to put off camera lights in key points, but the single flash technique worked surprisingly well in this image. At least, when compared with the nearly unusable ambient light.
