Black Rock City: Burning Man takes place this week in Northern Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. It’s hard to believe that once a year tens of thousands of people gather to create Black Rock City, an entirely fabricated town dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. And after the week is over, there is absolutely no trace of human life leftover whatsoever. Honestly, amazing.

Three #backgammon players, two sitting, and one standing, at a table which holds the #backgammonboard, a clay pipe and smoking paraphenalia including a brazier and a paper with loose tobacco.

Codde was a Dutch painter and poet who worked primarily in #Amsterdam. He produced many #paintings with the theme of backgammon.
