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 the games begin!

Colorado Springs is an Olympic city, so it makes sense that we get a little excited around here when the games are on! Not only are we home to the Olympic Training Center (which I'm proud to say is in my neighborhood), we are also home to the United States Olympic Committee. As I'm sure you're aware, the London Games kicked off on Friday, and in Colorado Springs there was a huge street party to celebrate well into the night, culminating in lighting our own Olympic torch right in front of the USOC headquarters. There were about 15,000 people in attendance -- big party! I roamed around with Pat and took pictures of all the goings-on.

I love this lady's team spirit!

These Olympic gymnasts did a trampoline demo in the middle of Tejon Street. It was pretty spectacular.

Trampolining with snowboards!

Gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi lit the Olympic torch.

There was a gargantuan TV screen in the street in front of the USOC headquarters, showing the opening ceremonies in London. The crowd clapped and cheered wildly when Team USA finally marched across the screen.

So glad there was something uplifting and positive to celebrate after all the difficulties in the Springs and Colorado in the last few months. What a wonderful celebration!

I agree Jacqui!
