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!

April Theme Day: Triangles!


It's the first of the month, and that means it's Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers! This month's theme is triangles. As I explained yesterday, Pat and I went driving around looking for good triangular subjects and ended up at the Pioneers Museum, where there is a large pyramid-shaped sculpture on the Nevada Avenue side of the building. But it's still winter here, and that means the planters in front of the sculpture are filled with dirt and dead vegetation -- not exactly photogenic. I took a few pictures of it but wasn't happy with what I got. Then I had a bright idea: the US Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel, of course! Talk about a giant triangle!

You may be wondering why there is a bride and groom in this picture. It's because I'm a wedding photographer, and I cover weddings at the Cadet Chapel all the time. For today's post I didn't have to go the Air Force Academy and take a picture; I simply picked out a favorite shot from one of the many weddings I've done there. (This one was from Morgan and Mark's event in 2011, and if you're curious to see more of their wedding pictures just click HERE.)

April 3, 2013 edit: I had a comment on this post a couple of days ago from fellow blogger Revrunner, who mentioned that he had a photo of the Cadet Chapel while it was still under construction. Today he posted that picture on his blog! To see it, click HERE. It's a view of the south side of the building, and it would have been taken around 1961 or '62. Thanks so much for posting it, Revrunner! So cool!
