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!

The first blush of spring

We're finally beginning to see signs of spring! The shrubbery in front of First Congregational Church is just starting to bud. Hooray for spring!

First Congregational Church

A section of one of the enormous stained glass windows on the First Congregational Church on St. Vrain Street. It's one of our most impressive downtown churches, completed in 1889, and is listed on the National Historic Register.

The modern sculpture that sits beside the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors building on Tejon Street. I first blogged about this sculpture in 2009, and it's still there. I don't know who created it or what it's about; I just like the way it looks, especially when the sun hits it at just the right angle in the late afternoon.

Skywatch Friday: blood moon

It's Skywatch Friday, and probably like many other participants, I have a picture of the lunar eclipse to show you! Could you see it from where you live? It was pretty awe inspiring. I took this shot at exactly 1:23AM Mountain Standard Time. Once the moon was in full eclipse, the "blood" color became truly evident, especially in photos (I did not manipulate this at all, other than cropping and removing "noise"). Beautiful! It was worth standing outside in my front yard in 28 degree temperatures! Below is an animated GIF of the eclipse in progress. Since I took so many pictures, I thought I'd make an animation for you (apologies that this is not scientific -- my tripod kept shifting, so the moon isn't quite following its true trajectory here).

Denver Auto Show (part 2)

Just a few more photos from the Denver Auto Show last Saturday. Lots of amazing cars. I'll take one of each, please!
I would love to have a convertible Mini Cooper S. It looks like such a fun car!

Here's me in the latest, greatest Jaguar. Hmmmm, I think I look pretty good in it ;^)

The Denver Auto Show

Do you like cars? If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know I like cars! And my brother Chuck likes cars even more than I do. Last Saturday we went to the Denver Auto Show at the Colorado Convention Center, and it was so much fun! Every major manufacturer had their latest, greatest models on display, and there were tons of exotic cars too. I took so many pictures, I'll blog some today and some tomorrow. Enjoy!

Nissan GT-R. Hot car!

This Maserati had a lot of admirers.
SRT Viper: 8.4 liter, V-10 engine. All they had to do was open the hood, and people queued up for a closer look.

Roswell Community Church

My lifelong fascination with the Roswell neighborhood hasn't dulled. The other day I cruised through there and stopped for a quick snap of charming Roswell Community Church, which I first blogged about four years ago. I love its old-fashioned charm.
