We’re starting to see #latergrams (what we like to call images that are posted to Instagram well after the photo was initially taken) from this year’s Burning Man appear! “What is Burning Man" you ask? Well, we’ll let their short description and the following featured photos of the Black Rock Desert do the talkin’:
