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!

Rain, rain, go away... on second thought, stay.

It rained all day yesterday. The sun never made an appearance. But weather be damned; when the refrigerator is empty, to the grocery store I must go, and so I went. Afterward I decided to brave the soggy weather for a few minutes so I could take some pictures for the blog. This sculpture lives right in front of the Fine Arts Center, at the entrance to the parking lot. I didn't stick around to find the name of the artist for you -- I don't like getting wet! The family in the sculpture doesn't seem to care too much, though.

I don't mind the rain. We need it. Rain down here in the city means snow up high in the mountains. Our snow pack isn't quite where it should be to get us through the hot summer months, so April showers, keep on coming!

There is a Spanish saying: "In April a thousand waters" But this year we have to say in April waters twelve hundred.

Quite a strong sculptural set. I would prefer rain between midnight and six in the morning- I really don't like being out in it!
