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!

Yesterday I went to my alma mater to stroll around and see how things have changed. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs is way too much to say/write/type, so everyone just calls it UCCS, and some people call it Cragmor -- in fact, that general area of town is known as Cragmor. Every now and then I find myself at UCCS, mostly to visit the fantastic art gallery (called the GOCA), but I haven't actually purposefully explored the campus on foot in decades! Of course all of the old buildings that I remember from my student days are still there, and a few more have been added. The oldest building, Main Hall (seen in the photo below), has been completely given over to administrative offices. It was once a tuberculosis sanatorium, a century or more ago. I remember having classes in that old building and wondering if it was haunted!

Since the school is currently between semesters, I was able to: A) immediately get a great parking spot, something that would normally be considered an act of God; and B) get photographs of the place looking almost completely deserted. Which was just plain weird! But I like the school with no one there. Nice and peaceful.

Some of the architecture fits in with campuses here as well. And summers are always quiet on the two big university campuses here. I think there's only a tenth the amount of students around taking classes through summer.
