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!

The Museum of Outdoor Arts

My friend Jennifer lives and works in the Denver Tech Center, or the DTC for short. Technically in Englewood at the very southern edge of the Denver metro area, the DTC is acres and acres of soulless office towers (architectural abominations, most of them), chain restaurants, generic strip malls, and monotonously beige apartment communities. Driving through it is both confusing and depressing; confusing because it's so easy to lose your bearings in such a vast ocean of corporate sameness, and depressing because it's, well, a vast ocean of corporate sameness. The DTC becomes a ghost town after 6:00pm and on the weekends, because tens of thousands of office workers run for the hills at Miller time. Then it's eerily deserted. I'm relieved that Jennifer is moving away from this place, to a real neighborhood with trees and friendly next door neighbors and no office buildings. On Saturday I drove up there to help her pack. Afterward, we went out for a snack (to a chain restaurant, of course), and as we drove through the DTC, we went past this place. It's called the Museum of Outdoor Arts, and I've never heard of it. A sculpture garden smack in the middle of the Denver Tech Center, what a pleasant surprise! I jumped out of the car to take a couple of pictures for you. The next time I'm up there, I'll try to take some time to explore it!
