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!

Blue Lady

This beautiful old Victorian home sits at the convergence of Ramona Avenue, Tejon Street, and Cheyenne Boulevard where it converts from Cascade Avenue, a very busy (and no doubt confusing for some) intersection. It's at the edge of Ivywild which, as you know, is a neighborhood that I'm quite fond of. About five years ago my dear friend Rhonda was renting it, and once she let me have the run of the place for a photo shoot. It's quite beautiful on the inside as well. All the old woodwork is intact. Rhonda told me that long ago it was a whorehouse. I don't know if that's true, but I can tell you that the bedrooms have doorbells! Hmmmm! My nosy internet sleuthing tells me that it was built in 1889, and as you can see, even though it's a rental property on a very busy corner, the owner takes good care of it. For me it's a landmark home; it's always been there for as long as I can remember, and I hope it lives on forever.

It truly is a landmark house, and I love its history--true or not. You photographed well and it is a standout!
