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 flowery house

This house sits just outside the entrance to the Patty Jewett Golf Course. As you can see, they've already gotten a jump start on the rest of us with their perfect green lawn and their wall-o-flowers. I can't wait to see this in a month or two, it's going to look great!

Patty Jewett is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the entire city, yet a lot of people don't even know it exists. It's just a few short blocks of perfect little 1920s bungalows, some of them in the Spanish style like this one. If you go a few blocks west you'll start to run into Victorian mansion land, but Patty Jewett is more charming in many ways.

The next time you're downtown, cruise over to the streets just west of the golf course and see what I'm talking about. There are very few "for sale" signs in these front lawns though, so I guess you'll have to be like me and daydream!

Very Santa Fe looking from this one photo. Unusuall way to hang pots but I agree it'll look really good.
