Cupcakes come in elaborately decorated varieties...they really are the perfect treat. They have captured the hearts of millions. Cupcake shops are popping up in neighborhoods everywhere.

The first cupcake was created in 1796 (written in 'American Cookery' by Amelia Simmons). Back then, they were often referred to as "number cakes", "1234 cakes" or, "quarter cakes" because it was an easy way to remember ingredient portions (one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour and so on..).

A Jamaican Rasta man is a man who belongs to the Rastafari movement, which originated in Jamaica. Although it is commonly thought of as a religion, Rastas consider it a lifestyle and culture as well as a spiritual path.

The Rastafari movement started in the 1930s and is based on the teachings of Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican who had a vision of uniting black people around the world and returning to Africa.
Rastas are also known for their dreadlocks, which stem from a Biblical commandment to avoid cutting hair. The Rastafari movement is peaceful, with many Rastas taking part in anti-war and other pacifist movements.

As Jamaican Rastafari began to immigrate to the United States in the 1960s and 1970s, small, localized, and homogeneous Rastafari communities began to spring up across the country. One such community appeared in San Francisco where this photograph was taken.

Mural painted on a garage door in Balmy Alley depicting cops in riot gear forcing Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. As most believe, the reason why they were banished from the Garden was because they disobeyed God and ate from the tree, and hence they committed sin, and as a result of this sin they were banished from the presence of God as sin cannot be in the presence of God.

Balmy Alley, at the heart of the Mission District of San Francisco, is a full block of concentrated art murals. It is an evolving exhibit that adorns almost all garages, doors, fences, walls, and homes throughout the alley.

The annual late-summer 'Burning Man' festival is an event held in the western United States at Black Rock City, a temporary city erected in the Black Rock Desert of northwest Nevada, approximately 100 miles north-northeast of Reno, and a thriving year-round culture generated by a global community of participants. The event spans the nine days leading up to and including Labor Day. Once considered an underground gathering for bohemians and free spirits of all stripes, Burning Man has since evolved into a destination for social media influencers, celebrities and the Silicon Valley elite.

'Church Trap is a Burning Man Honorarium Winning art installation by Rebekah Waites that made it's debut at the 2013 Burning Man festival in Black Rock City, NV. Church Trap was more than just an art installation about dogma as a trap, it also provided the perfect backdrop for non-stop performances on the playa. For one week at Black Rock City in 2013, Church Trap became the most interactive art piece at Burning Man.

This photograph seen on display at the exhibition, “No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man,” at the Oakland Museum of California.
