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!

This statue of Orpheus has lived in front of the downtown library since I can remember. The edifice in the background is called the Holly Sugar Building, even though it's been several years since Holly Sugar had its headquarters there. Interesting factoid about Colorado Springs: there is a city ordinance forbidding buildings from blocking the view of the mountains. Therefore, our tallest buildings are maybe 13 or 14 stories (I think Holly Sugar is 11). Because of this, even though we have over half a million residents, visitors tend to think of Colorado Springs as a "small town", simply because we have no skyscrapers!

I think that's a wonderful ordinance!
