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!

Nothing but blue skies

I'm not going to lie, this week has been a little rough on me. Not easy. I'm still trying to get back to my usual cheerful self after the brouhaha on Tuesday and Wednesday, still feeling a little dispirited by it all. I guess it affected me more than I care to admit. Yesterday was very "up and down". I decided after work to go to one of my favorite spots just to recharge my batteries, so to speak. After a couple of days of snow, Palmer Park was looking so pretty. I was only there long enough to take a few pictures but I felt immensely better afterward. The sky was so blue. Above is a shot looking to the southeast, and the pano below (three photos put together) is looking southward. The lyrics to the old Irving Berlin standard come to mind:

"Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see."

I really am so lucky to live here.

When I am feeling down, blue skies work for me. In fact when I looked at you photos I could feel my spirit getting a slight boast. Good luck getting back to normal.

My mom lives in Colorado Springs - she will turn 90 in March. She lives at the MacKenzie independent living place right near the barn, so seeing that picture was great for me. In general, I love your blog as it lets me be in Colorado Springs even though I actually live right outside DC. I lived in the Springs for a few years when I was very young, so it is sort of home for me (and, no, my dad was not in the military).

So sorry for the nastiness! I love and hate the internet. I am glad you have beautiful Colorado Springs to help you heal.
