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!

Hm... Merkins?

It looks like a personal trainer or coach has been using the Trestle/Under the Bridge Arts District (or whatever it's called) to train their pupils, writing their instructions on this pillar. I don't know what bent o' rows or high-knees are, but they sound painful. And merkins? I always took that to mean a pubic wig! 😂 I just looked it up and apparently it's also another word for push-ups.

I know it's just chalk, but this is what inspires taggers to do their own thing with materials that are harder to clean.

I don't know that taggers are inspired by chalk scribbles made by personal trainers! I think they have other reasons for doing what they do.

I am laughing. So glad you looked it up. Now I don't have to. I came across that word about 25 years ago, was highly amused (who knew??). Told my husband, and he was too. Told the women at work (all female office) and they were too. One was enterprising and called the cafe where my husband was having coffee, and asked for "Curly Merkin." I guess the waitress hollered it out. But no one answered her. My husband was disappointed he hadn't been paying attention.

Read today about the awful event in CS. Just more awfulness.

Read today about the horrible event in your town yesterday. Things change everywhere....even in a good place.
