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!

Election Day

Yesterday was municipal election day in Colorado Springs. There were only four issues on the ballot (plus a vote for city council members in various districts), so it was a fairly "minor" election. The city decided to do only mail-in ballots this time. I prefer to actually go and vote rather than mailing my ballot; there's something nice about going to a polling place and filling out the ballot and putting it into the box. Then they give you an "I Voted!" sticker to proudly display on your shirt.

As it happened, Pat and I forgot to mail our ballots in time. We ended up having to submit them in person, so I got the voting experience anyway. I went to the Senior Center on North Hancock -- I like voting there because everyone's so nice. Here's a picture of me casting my ballot, and the lovely election volunteers who assisted me. (And yes, I got my sticker!)

Today is Pat's birthday. Happy birthday honey, I love you!

Happy Birthday to Pat!

These folks at the voting place look just like the people at our voting places.

I prefer the in-person voting myself. That way, I KNOW they got my ballot.
