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!

A Keith Haring Fitness Court in Green Mountain Falls, of All Things

File this under Things I Never Thought I'd See in Green Mountain Falls: something called the Keith Haring Fitness Court. I was in GMF on Saturday to photograph a wedding. This little hamlet west of Colorado Springs has a population of under 700 people, and yet a new fitness court featuring the instantly recognizable work of Keith Haring, the famous New York street artist who died of AIDS in 1990 at age 31, has magically appeared on the main drag. Clearly they erected this facility with the blessing of the Haring estate. To be honest, quiet little Green Mountain Falls is practically the last place on earth I'd think would have anything like this, considering Haring was openly gay and some of his work is quite sexual, although most of it simply has a joyously childlike, pop art appeal. This is wonderful! Pat and I are huge fans of Keith Haring, so I can't wait to drive up the pass with him so he can see this in person.

Found Objects

Don't you love it when you stumble across some public art that you've never noticed before? I do! I found these two large pieces in Green Mountain Falls over the weekend, when I was there to photograph a wedding. After the wedding I doubled back to take a few pictures of them, along with one other remarkable thing that caught my eye earlier in the day. You'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out what that is.

Feels Like Summer!

It finally feels like summer! Perfect weather for taking a walk with your bestie in the Near North End. I'm loving these warm-but-not-hot days. Bring it!

Looking west across Cascade Avenue and through the front sculpture garden of our lovely Fine Arts Center rewards you with a nicely framed view of our favorite hunk of granite.

Virginia Creeping

The Cascade Park Apartments are covered in Virginia creeper. I really like the look of it, especially in the fall when the leaves turn crimson. I make it a point to drive by and check it out every year during autumn.

The "crest" above one of the doors of the Cascade Park Apartments looks rather fawncy, don't you think? Especially with that eagle/griffin/gryphon thing to top it off. I think this stuff must all be original to the building, which was erected in 1884-ish although it was added on to in the 1930s.
