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!

It looks the part

A photo taken in Denver a week or two ago, on Stout and 14th. This old building currently houses a "gentlemen's cabaret", but doesn't it look as if it started out as a place of ill repute to begin with? A little research tells me that it was built in 1909. To me it looks exactly like a fictional whorehouse out of a 1950s western. The lurid paint colors add to the effect. I read somewhere once that Victorian buildings were usually painted a shocking palette of bright colors, so I suppose the current paint job is fitting.

"Gentlemen"- I wonder how they can put that into their sign and keep a straight face.
