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!

The smallest studio in town


Or possibly the smallest in the world, even. Behold the petite studio of local artist Laura Reilly, in the heart of Old Colorado City. This was once a passageway for horses -- a narrow alley measuring only about five feet across. At some point it was closed in with a roof, back wall and front door, and after spending many years as the storage unit for the old hardware store, it eventually made its way into Laura's hands. It's such a cozy little space, lined floor to ceiling with Laura's cheerful, impressionistic paintings. Laura sits at the back of the space and paints as shoppers wander in and out (that's her in the photo). I saw a couple of paintings in there I'd like to have. Hmmmm, my birthday and Christmas are coming up, maybe I can convince someone to buy an original Laura Reilly to add to my collection...

Beautiful artwork! I know Pikes Peak Community College just had a great art show in October (http://pikespeakcommunitycollege.co/) -- We really need more art resources in our community, and more young people incorporation art classes into their college education!
