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!

I snapped these pysanky at G44 Gallery last month, right around Easter time. You can find these and many more beautiful goodies there, including artisanal jewelry, pottery, functional bibelots and desirable objets. But it's also very much a fine art gallery, so if you're looking for a masterpiece to display in your home, you should really go check it out. It's owned by my friend Gundega and she has a wonderful eye.

Sunday Style!

Here's a hip kid I snapped a picture of in April, but forgot to share until now. He was at the post office with (I assume) his mom, and since it was tax day there was a long, long line. He was amazingly patient -- in fact, he never looked at his phone once, which was pretty extraordinary, considering his age! (I know, people of all ages are addicted to their phones, but to me, teenagers seem to be especially so.) Anyway, I thought his Pac Man hoodie was pretty cool and deserved to be seen on the blog.

I just liked the beautiful colors in this moment. They call it the golden hour for a reason. This is Packard Hall on the CC campus.

Pat and I drove to Denver the "back way" a few days ago. That is, we drove west through Woodland Park then north up to Conifer and Highway 285, rather than taking the more traveled interstate route. It's a pretty drive. There's a scenic spot to pull the car over past Deckers, and we always stop there for a picture or a breather. This is the view.

An Art Déco/Art Moderne Gem on the CC Campus

This is a building that I've never paid much attention to, and I don't know why that is, because if you read this blog regularly you know that I'm a big fan of the Déco period in design and architecture. The building is called the Frederick H. Cossitt Memorial Hall and it was built in 1914. It was added to the National Historic Register in 1997, and deservedly so. I really love the façade. I've never been inside but it'd be fun to explore it sometime.

A Rare BMW

Yesterday I had to go to the BMW dealer to pick up something for my Mini, and I noticed this cool old roadster on display. Apparently it's a 1928 DA2 Dixi, and it's quite rare. Look how beautiful it is! Perfectly restored. I especially like the Saint Christopher steering wheel medallion. Nice touch.

The intersection of Bijou and Weber streets, captured on March 23rd. Hopefully I'll have a more stimulating photo for you tomorrow -- this one's pretty dull!
