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!

Three, two, one... BLAST OFF!

Pat and I spent Sunday afternoon at Memorial Park near our house, enjoying the sunshine and launching a rocket! I got him an Estes rocket for Christmas, and this was the first chance we've had to actually play with the thing. Of course I had to photograph the whole process.  We launched the rocket three times, and I managed to capture the sequence pretty well on the second attempt.  I made a little animated GIF for you, what do you think?

I must say, this was a really fun way to spend an afternoon and I can't wait to do it again!  If you haven't tried launching a rocket, you should -- especially if you have kids.
