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 Manassa Mauler

Did you know that Jack Dempsey was a native Coloradoan? I didn't! I knew that he was called the Manassa Mauler, but I never made the connection to tiny Manassa, Colorado, which is in the southern part of the state. He is of course widely known as a pugilist, but he was also a lifelong philanthropist and stand up guy, which I think deserves to be said. I found this mural in Denver (see yesterday's post), near the Convention Center. That horse's head you see to the left of Dempsey belongs to Teddy Roosevelt. You'll have to tune in tomorrow for that.

I like the mural. From what I've heard of him, he was a better champion- as a person- than Tyson ever was.
