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!

March 2015 Theme Day: Aging


It's the start of the month, and that means it's another Theme Day for City Daily Photo bloggers! This month's theme is aging. A full workload and the recent spate of chilly and snowy weather have largely kept me from getting outdoors and exploring with my camera, however Pat and I did find time the other day to track down this old log cabin that I spied a couple of months ago in an alley just south of Cache la Poudre and west of Institute. I have no idea what year it was built, but it looks like it must have been one of the original buildings in the neighborhood -- maybe even before you could have called it a neighborhood! Perhaps it dates back to the area's pioneer days, before the city was founded. I don't know anything about this intriguing little cabin, even what the address is. In fact, it probably doesn't technically have an address, because it sits behind someone's house, so it's likely considered to be a garage or even a lowly shed. Being so completely in the dark about it is driving me insane! I want to know the history of it! Was it someone's home? Was it a barn? It looks like some updates have been made to it, such as the newer barn door and a rather incongruous, tiny vinyl window on the north-facing side. I assume the original window in that spot must have been equally tiny.

Below is a closer view of where the old logs are joined at the corner. It really seems to be old world craftsmanship. I will do my best to find more information, and when I do, I'll post an update!

Wood is one of the things that best reflect age.

You can see in the detail shot the logs have been joined there for quite an age Tamara.. Now you have me curious as to the use of this old log cabin, investigative work ahead :)

Love the 'corner' shot. Well, March is a changing month for all. Think sun.

This is a wonderful find Tamera and I'm sure there must be an interesting history there. I hope you are able to find out!

Funny how a photograph like this gets your mind working about it origins, etc. No doubt you will find out more and share later on. Good luck!

It certainly looks quite enduring, however long it's been there.
