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!

A family kind of day

My mom's sister, Ellen, will soon be moving back to the Philippines permanently. There has been quite a bit of preparation going into this big move, including emotionally. She is over 70 now, which means I may never see her again. I have no plans of visiting the Philippines any time soon and she has no plans of coming back here. So there has been a flurry of lunches, dinners and other excuses to spend time together before she leaves. Today my mother, Ellen and another aunt, Tita, and I went to lunch at Applebee's and then spent a little time at the Pioneers Museum, formerly the El Paso County Courthouse.

It was a nice afternoon. Yesterday was a bad day; it was snowy and miserable, and I got some very bad news about an old friend. It was bright and sunny today. Spending time with my mom and two of her sisters helped to make yesterday seem a little less bad.

This is a photo of the east facade of the building. That's Ellen on the left, my mom in the middle and Tita on the right. They're checking out the sculpture that sits in front of the museum, "Follow the Setting Sun" by artist Harriett Lee. Sorry this is such a bad picture! I just wasn't in a good position to capture it well, but I liked the random way they're walking.

I'm sorry you had a rough day. I like the random walking, too!

I'm really glad that you had a better day today. It's good to see that you're getting to spend some time with your Auntie before she has to go. Hugs to you.

Oh dear. Family leaving, especially permanently, is such a sad time. I wish your mom's sister the best of luck and I hope that you can all visit her one of these days.

The museum is grand-looking and I love the sun sculpture!
