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 Drive-In

Just when you think you can't take it anymore, winter begins to wane and spring makes its tentative debut. Part of that debut in Colorado Springs is the seasonal opening of the Drive-In, a little ice cream/burger joint just up the block from my studio. They close down entirely in the winter and re-open their doors in early spring.

The Drive-In is a popular place for locals and tourists alike. It's been there since the 1950's and hasn't changed much since it opened. I think it's one of the best places in town to get a milkshake or a soft serve cone.

Today I had lunch with my mom and my Aunt Ellen, who will soon be leaving to move back permanently to the Philippines. We had Thai for lunch, then we stopped at the Drive-In for some soft serve. I know, Thai food and soft serve ice cream sounds like a bad mix, but it was delicious! And so nice to spend a little time with my mom and auntie.

All the old Drive-Ins in our area are gone. Sad in a way. Fond memories.
