The Photography of Phydeaux460

You might have noticed the dazzling new Get Out header with the neon signs floating above all this jazz. I must give credit to the photographer/collage artist known as Phydeaux460 aka Jess Jackson of Boise who took the original image and posted it on his flickr page, from where I totally swiped it. I've really been enjoying his wonderful photos of North Idaho, especially the ones that feature all the cool vintage signs in the area. Below are some examples, as well as a link to Jess' flickr page so you can check out his hundreds of other photos of local lakes, buildings and landscapes. Pretty neato stuff.

I love these photos and the memories they bring back. Did you realize the Miner's Hat was first a drive-in restaurant? My dad moonlighted as a bartender at the Sunshine Inn in its hey-dey in the 60's and early 70's and I am glad they didn't change the sign much when they reopened. When we moved to the house my Mom still calls home in Kellogg, my parents bought if from the Peggs that moved to CdA to run the State Motel. I have always loved the chimney. I also like the state with the neon photos. Very cool post.

Wow! - I have to admit that I'm a little flattered by all this. I wish I had known about this sooner. I'm glad you are enjoying my neon photo series.

I enjoyed the theme and seeing some of the signs I'm familiar with. Looking forward to seeing more of your work Phydeaux460.
