Hot summer days, hot classic cars, Hot August Nights.  These are a few of my favorite things living in Northern Nevada has to offer.  While I didn’t go crazy and shoot every car in the Peppermill Resort Hotel parking lot this afternoon, I did take several HDR composites of my favorites and a couple close-ups of some of the coolest hood ornaments I’ve ever seen.

Did you check out any classics this year?  What were your fav’s?

The Light Circus-Art of Nevada Neon Signs-Bucky-The Nevada Club

Bucky, The Nevada Club

Nevada and neon go hand-in-hand, right?  Here we are treated to many of the greatest, albeit now defunct collector pieces of neon that have ever graced the desert sands of Northern and Southern Nevada alike.  From the once tallest building in Reno (Mapes Hotel) to Parkers Western Wear where John Wayne once shopped in the mid 70′s, this collection of true Nevadan history, as curated by Will Durham, tells a story of moments and memories rolled by like a tumbleweed across I-80 and premonitions of perhaps where the state is headed in the remainder of the 21st century.

If anything, photographing these historic landmarks has shown me that there is a real history and culture to this state that I might have otherwise overlooked as a transplant.  What I’ve been searching for in terms of semi-historic relevance has finally been realized in the form of blissful glowing light emanating from the edges of the third floor Feature Gallery of the Nevada Museum of Art.  Thank you Reno, you’ve made this Wisconsin boy feel at home.
