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!

May theme day: shadows

It's the first of the month and you know what that means -- theme day for City Daily Photo bloggers! This month's theme is shadows. I thought about it for a few days, then decided that a sundial would be a great subject. There's a sundial on the south side of the former Van Briggle Pottery building in Monument Valley Park near the Colorado College, so Pat and I ventured there yesterday to photograph it at around 4:30 or 5:00pm. (More about Van Briggle in another post.)

The shadow wasn't as dramatic as I'd hoped it would be, but still you can see where it tells time very accurately! According to the shadow I took this photo at 4:45pm.

[ETA -- Some of the CDP bloggers seem to have confused shadows with silhouettes or even reflections, but even so the pictures are cool, so check them out! One clever blogger in Sydney, Australia even took a photo of someone's five o'clock shadow!]

That's a beautiful sundial! You and I had the same idea, only I took my photo at noon. I actually thought more people would post sundials, but I have only seen one other one besides yours and mine!

Very cool!! Lois at Tallahassee Daily Photo used a sundial for her theme day, too.

I visited Van Briggle Pottery several times when we lived in CS, but I don't remember this! Beautiful.
