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!

Thank you firefighters!

Truly, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. There are 1,000 brave firefighters currently battling the Waldo Canyon blaze, and everyone in our city is expressing their appreciation. Pat and I drove around yesterday evening and photographed impromptu displays of gratitude. I agree heartily with every one of these signs. Thank you, thank you firefighters! You are our heroes!

This sign was right in front of the firehouse on Colorado and Limit. As I was taking this picture, two ladies showed up with large quantities of homemade food and knocked on the door, hoping to give it to the firefighters.

This one doesn't mention firefighters, but I think it's my favorite because it shows how much our community has rallied together over this crisis. We may not always agree on everything, but we are all in this together.

It warms my heart to see how our country responds to tragedies and crises. With love and goodwill. It's fantastic how Colorado Springs is embracing the firefighters!

P.S. My cousin's son is off fighting fires in Colorado, but I'm not sure where he's at. He's been fighting forest fires for 5 years now from June-October.

Very encouraging signs. I really like how you put this, Tamera: "We may not always agree on everything, but we are all in this together."
