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!

Let's go to the fair!

Pat and I were on the east side of town running errands this evening, and on the way home we drove past this traveling fair on Platte Avenue at Powers. He said, "Wow, that would make a great picture!" So I pulled over and took out my trusty little point and shoot camera. I captured this image by turning off the engine to minimize vibration, and steadying the camera on the car for stability. I shot from the drivers seat.

I wish it had been just a little lighter out, and I wish that a "real" camera had been handy, but I think my little Canon Power Shot did a pretty decent job anyway. Maybe I'll go back on Sunday night and give it another try with an SLR and a tripod.

I think your little camera caught a wonderful nighttime view! It wouldn't have been the same during the day.

If you're going back to that fair, count me in!

Very nicely shot! I wonder if this is the same one that was at Austin Bluffs & Academy? Here are a couple shots from that location:
