The Road Show didn't have long in Boise this time around, and when our quick loop through town turned this up, it was the find of the trip. One might even call it fitting.

Hey n1w that's a cool sign, great logo. My daughter once lived in Boise, Idaho and worked at a Ski Lodge called Galena. Greetings. M.

yes, yes, we should rob a camera store as well. then we won't have to waste the plunder on new camera gear for us all.

Unfortunately Don,this one is well lit! But you got another nice neon n1w without an investment at least in neon. :)

This is a great sign! It got a Yellow Star from me, although I'm not sure if it's the sign a like most, or the photographic quality. Well, maybe it's both.

I keep suggesting that to the missus, Dr., but she's a "good girl".

When I was a pimp, I had a ho camera too.

Hey, marbiz, it sure is a small world, isn't it? I lived down the street from here on Rose Hill for a few years in the mid-seventies. I'm glad you liked the sign.

Nice thinks, Don. I had totally missed the opportunity of this.

lol, and thanks, Margot. It's always nice to save a dollar here and there.

Thank you very much for all of that, Norrel! I took a few of this one, including some with the whole store front, but I thought this closer view would show the lens effect a bit better.

...and that's why you want to marry her, whoelius. Good on ya. You got a chuckle out of me with #2. ; )

Neon and Cameras.

Now what force in the universe was strong enough to draw you away from this??? I can imagine you'd have stayed there, transfixed. That's quite some sign!

'Tis a mystery, kamaly. Oh, I remember--it was called college. And a pesky bother it was, too. Could have lived a good long time without that intrusion. Of course, it was in college that I developed (ha!) my interest in photography, so I suppose what we're dealing with is the circularity of life. Did I first have to live close enough to the neon camera store sign to fully appreciate the later interest in using a camera to record neon signs? Oooohh, my head hurts...

But, I'm glad you like the sign!

It's a sign. I know it.

That's because you're such a brilliant man, whoelius. I didn't think that I'd be able to sneak this one by the likes of you, so I didn't even try.

what don said. if someone could be good enough to snag me a nice canon and a nice nikon, while i'm behind the wheel of the idling 78 buick, i'll make up my mind back at the hideout.

Larry you have larceny in your heart!!

not1word on August 16, 2009

Larry, Larry, Larry. Greed is not our motivating factor in this gang. We are in it for the sheer thrill and lessons taught.

larry e walton on August 16, 2009

it... it... its not? well, i have my entire value set to reconsider, now. could we not have greed as no. 2?

whoelius on August 16, 2009

Well, thank you, not1word. One tries to keep an eye open, especially when taking photos!

not1word on August 16, 2009

Sorry, Larry. Greed is particularly not allowed. One gets too greedy, and all the lessons and booty get lost. Greed is after far down on the list, down after blindness, which Mr. whoelius brought up. It's not nice to make fun of my blindness, Sir. Just because I can't see to expose an image properly, that doesn't mean that you can draw attention to that fact.
