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 March on Colorado Springs

On Saturday afternoon, thousands of people congregated in Acacia Park to take part in the March on Colorado Springs, joining countless similar events around the world. I joined them, along with many of my friends. It was, in a word, uplifting. I tend to keep this blog as apolitical as possible as a rule, but I wanted to share some of the pictures I took at the rally. The energy was phenomenal. Far, far more people showed up than had been anticipated, so the police ended up having to block off traffic lanes on Tejon, Colorado and Nevada. This was obviously a huge inconvenience to anyone who got stuck in the ensuing traffic slowdown, but the drivers were actually smiling, honking and waving their support instead of cursing us. (In fact, I saw only one counter-protester, and everyone was polite and respectful.)

I took way too many pictures to fit into a single blog post, so I made a slideshow instead. Watch it below or click HERE to view it at a higher resolution on YouTube. (Warning: strong opinions are expressed in many of these pictures -- it's the American way!)
