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 Very Large Rocking Chair

This 21 foot high rocking chair lives in tiny Penrose (about 35 minutes south of us on Highway 115) in front of a now shuttered restaurant called the Apple Shed. Built in 1990 by a man in Security, part of the Colorado Springs metro area, for a time it was the record holder for the world's largest rocking chair. Funny story: when Pat and I first started dating, he was working in the construction business. His company's office was in the Security/Fountain area, and this chair sat in front of their building. I have no idea why the World's Largest Rocking Chair was displayed in front of Jerry's Roofing, but I always thought it was funny. Eventually Jerry retired and the chair ended up in Penrose somehow. Alas, it is no longer the world's largest. That honor was bestowed upon a truly gargantuan rocker in Illinois in 2015.
