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!

The Colorado state flower

A lovely front garden in  the Old North End. I discovered it while on a walk with a friend yesterday. Don't you love columbines? I do. I grow them in my garden too!

Denver Comic Con (Part 4)

Here are the last of my Comic Con pictures. Enjoy!
This man was GIGANTIC. With the helmet he was well over seven feet tall. People were gaping in awe as he passed. I can't think of a more appropriate costume for him -- just perfect.

Denver Comic Con (Part 3)

Just a few more fun costumes from Comic Con last weekend. I had planned on blogging ten pictures today like I did the last couple of days, but I'm too busy! So I'll share five now and the last five of them tomorrow.
If you're a fan of the show Parks and Recreation, you'll get a laugh out of this. We love Parks and Rec! We wanted to buy this but of course it was sold out. Too bad!

Denver Comic Con (Part 2)

More fun pics of Comic Con over the weekend! By the way, I think that's not a costume at all in the first photo -- it's a tattoo!

We thought this guy was the best of the many Deadpools we saw. He even had a unicorn.
This was hands down our favorite costume! Bob Ross! I love it!
One thing I learned about Comic Con is that not only will people gladly agree to be photographed, they'll immediately go into character and strike a pose.

Denver Comic Con (Part 1)

Yesterday Pat and I went to the Denver Comic Con! It was so much fun! We've never been to a Comic Con before so this was a unique experience for us. I got tons of pictures of some great costumes, and I even got to meet one of my favorite actors. I have a lot of photos so share, so I'll spread them out over the next couple of days.
Pat and I noticed that many people incorporated rainbows into their costumes. It wasn't until we left that we realized the Denver Pride Fest was going on a block or so away. (Let's not talk about the traffic. Oy.)
I noticed lots of Wonder Women but only one Xena. I think this lady must have made this costume herself, and she's also rocking a three day pass. Now that's commitment.
I loved this clever costume! He had wired the shirt to stay open and the tie to stay in that "blown back" position. Simple but hilarious!
I have to admit that I had no idea what was going on when it came to the majority of the costumes we saw. I'm a huge fan of Star Trek, Stargate, BSG, Joss Whedon and Supernatural, and I have a layman's appreciation for Marvel and Star Wars, but everything else is a big question mark for me. Many of the costumes at Comic Con were Manga or gamer inspired. I admired the creativity while not having a clue what it all meant.
How cool is this?!? I got to meet Mark Sheppard, the actor who plays Crowley (a.k.a. The King of Hell) on my favorite series, Supernatural. He's a funny guy!

Sunday Style!

Here are the last of my chic New Yorkers from the trip we took in April. Enjoy!
This lady's wearing three patterns and totally gets away with it. Oh and orange socks!
Casual-chic mom.
Fun flower headpiece over a hijab -- pretty!
Last but not least, a shop window at Dior. Love that mod black and white check.
