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!

President Roosevelt

Here's the rest of the horse that you glimpsed in yesterday's picture. I'm not sure why Teddy Roosevelt is featured in a mural right next to native Coloradoan Jack Dempsey, but I guess it must be because Roosevelt was a frequent visitor to Colorado and loved hunting game here. Also, he was known for his conservationism and establishing National Parks during his tenure. Colorado has four National Parks; among them, Mesa Verde (1906) was declared during Roosevelt's presidency, and Rocky Mountain (1915) not long after.

It really captures his personality. We desperately need him today.
