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 Ute Cafe

I took a few pictures of the Ute Cafe in Fort Garland as we headed back home from the Great Sand Dunes. Some of my photos were wider and took in the entire building, but I prefer the tighter shots that show the age and character of the place. This must have been a busy stop at one time, located on Highway 160 en route to Alamosa and parts beyond. Since the owner retired, apparently it's just been empty and teetering toward dilapidation. I don't know how long that's been but I do like how they have left their thoughts behind.
