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 (for that stuff, click HERE); 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!

A rhetorical question

Why is it that car troubles always happen when you are in the worst possible location in the entire city? (If you live here, you know how bad this particular intersection is because of the statue in the middle of the road.) The poor guy!

I have no comment

I spied this fellow walking near my studio a couple of weeks ago on a warm afternoon. At first I was too tickled to react, but then I got my wits about me and snapped a picture of him before he strolled out of sight. He reminded me a little of THIS article in the Onion (if you're unfamiliar with the Onion, please note that it's a satire website and not intended to be taken seriously). I don't know whether to be horrified or to admire his bold disregard for sartorial convention! I'm thinking maybe the latter. Well at least he was comfortable!

Mrs. Squirrel

Yesterday afternoon I had some family portraits scheduled in Monument Valley Park, and as I waited for my clients to arrive, Mrs. Squirrel graciously allowed me take a few snapshots of her on the fence. She sure is cute! Alas, I did not have any snacks to thank her with, and she seemed a bit miffed at me! Today I will be doing more family portraits in the same spot. I'll remember this time to bring a little treat for the squirrels!

Skywatch Friday

I am very much enjoying this mild autumn weather. It's my favorite season, and the trees seem to be more colorful than ever this year.

We've had some precipitation lately, and there's been a nice mantle of new snow on Pikes Peak the last few days. On Tuesday I finally got a chance to go to the overlook on Mesa and get a picture. So pretty.

Workplace style

Yesterday I treated myself to a healthy lunch at Wooglin's and was waited on by these two cute, stylish girls, Patti and Candice. I like Patti's cool glasses and necklace, and Candice's "Rosie the Riveter" vibe. Their smiles are the icing on the cake. :^)

Hot wheels in tow

I was driving north on I-25 the other day when I saw a DeLorean being towed on a flatbed behind a rental truck. It's always an odd thing to see a DeLorean, in my opinion -- I remember when they were so cool (before the "Back to the Future" kitsch factor), and they've always been kind of rare and exotic. This one had Arizona license plates. It looked to be in very nice condition. I wonder where it was headed.
