Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

Anatomical confusion

Pat and I had a great adventure this week at the top of a mountain, and I have many musings and photos to share, but I've been trying to catch up on work since we got home so I can't show you any of it just yet. I do, however, have this terribly anatomically incorrect depiction of a woman on the tailgate of a truck, spotted earlier this month in Denver. I must say, the artist either has severe astigmatism or they took a lot of artistic license with this poor woman's body! She apparently has no skeleton and is made of Silly Putty. 😉

I found this ancient Volvo in the alley behind a friend's house on the west side. In color, you can see the many layers of paint and rust, but I prefer it in black and white.

If you're a Colorado Springs expatriate, this photo might make you a little homesick. There are few things more uniquely local to this place than Starr Kempf's wonderful kinetic sculptures. This one can be found downtown, on Colorado between Tejon and Nevada, next to the Plaza of the Rockies.

Blue man

Another image from Boulder. This busker was doing his thing on the Pearl Street Mall, and he was tearing it up! The Pearl Street Mall is always an interesting place for people watching.

Very odd

I love it when random things like this cross my path. I was at Chautauqua Park in Boulder doing some engagement portraits when this lady sauntered past holding a stuffed coyote. Huh? I just happened to have a camera in my hand (duh!) so of course I snapped a picture. I think she was on her way to a photo shoot herself, because there was a reflector propped against a nearby fence. I wonder what was up!

Chautauqua Park

Another image from Boulder. Chautauqua Park is the most popular open space in the city. There are always lots of hikers and sunshine-seekers to be found there, like this group headed straight for the famous Boulder Flatirons.

Sunday Style!

The Pearl Street Mall in Boulder is a great place for people watching! I was there a few days ago doing a photo shoot, and while my clients were changing clothes I spied this hip couple. Love her hair!
