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!

Gold miner and his donkey

This life sized sculpture of a gold miner and his donkey greets you as you enter Old Colorado City, on the corner of 21st Street and Highway 24. This part of Colorado Springs depended heavily on mining for its livelihood in its early days, and there are reminders like this scattered throughout the neighborhood.

With his eyes to the horizon, which is fitting.
