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!

May 2017 Theme Day: Let's Eat!


April is already behind us! Happy May Day to you all! The first of the month is Theme Day for City Daily Photo bloggers, and this month's theme is Let's Eat! This time around I completely forgot to take a Theme Day picture and found myself in a pickle yesterday (pun intended) when I realized that I had nothing to post. Then I remembered that I had posted a rather fetching photo of an avocado to Instagram a couple of days ago. Yes, like the rest of humankind, I am susceptible to taking pictures of my food and posting those pictures to Instagram, I admit it! The problem is that I don't like having random food pictures taking up room on my phone, so I almost always delete them immediately. And true to form, I had done just that to my lovely avocado picture. (I wouldn't want to just grab the picture off off my Instagram because Instagram compresses the file -- in other words, it would look like crap on the blog. And besides, it would be square, and I rarely post square pictures here.) Cloud storage to the rescue! I've never even looked at my OneDrive account before but I gave it a try and I found the original picture immediately (along with a lot of other pointless food pictures and about a million terrible selfies). Ta da! So here you go, my lovely avocado, sans cheesy Instagram filter!

One last thing, for my Pinterest-y readers: I'm obsessed with beautiful food photography and I have a pinboard full of gorgeous photos of just that. You can find it HERE.

We eat these lovely avocados almost every day. They are a wonderful aid to losing weight.

That's a good looking avocado! Glad to hear the cloud came to your rescue.

Merisi said...

I would love to dig right in!

Kate said...

I certainly hope that avocados are good for me because I have one each day--half for breakfast and the rest in salads.

Jack said...

Nice save, Tamera. Your hunt was worth it.

Lea said...

I love avocados and that one looks really delicious!
Have a wonderful May!

Do you call them smashed avocados when they are put on toast?

Tamera said...

I dunno Jim, but I'm obsessed with avocado toast lately and eat it almost every morning for breakfast! Yum!

I've never tried avocado.

I had a pic in my post that I deleted while writing the text for the blog, and wouldn't you know, it was the only pic for the theme day that I hadn't backed up. Took it right off the memory card and didn't save it elsewhere. It was a sandwich.
