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!

Downtown Denver

This is a footbridge over the Platte River where it runs through downtown Denver. My friends Brian and Allison recently moved into a loft just a stone's throw from where this photo was taken.

I like this part of Denver, it's really abuzz with activity and things to do. It's affectionately known as the LoDo, short for "lower downtown". The LoDo is dear to my heart, not only because it's a former personal stomping ground (in my crazy, go-go nightclubbing days), but because it is also the former stomping ground of Beat poet Jack Kerouac and his mates (Ginsberg, Cassady, Burroughs, et al). It's chock full of character and history. If you are a fan of Kerouac, you really should visit the LoDo sometime and see where he got a lot of his inspiration.

Sounds like an interesting area of town. I really like the idea of a footbridge because I like to walk. The sky is amazingly blue in this picture!
