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!

Colorific luchador masks

Pat took this photo of Mexican luchador (wrestler) masks in Manitou Springs on the main drag there during a Christmas shopping errand in December. It's been languishing on my hard drive for a couple of months, and today was so dreary and freezing, I thought it was a good time to post it. The bright colors are such a nice pick-me-up. Great shot, Pat!

Motorcycle down

It's been very windy lately, which is typical, but last Wednesday was particularly gusty. I went to Starbucks to pick up a drink for Pat, and when I left the store, one of the two motorcycles that had been parked in front was lying on its side. Bummer! As I took this picture, I almost ended up lying on my side! Actually, a strong gust nearly blew me into another pedestrian. It was so windy!

Sunday Style!

I did some engagement portraits for a very stylish couple yesterday, and the bride wore these beautiful Louboutin "Decollette 554" shoes for some of the pictures. These perfectly proportioned jet black pumps with their familiar crimson soles have become a modern day classic. They do wonders for your legs! I would dearly love a pair but I will have to save my pennies first, since they run about $675. But still, a girl can dream.

A fire escape crawls down the back side of one of our beautiful old downtown buildings. This one is on Kiowa Street, between Tejon Street and Nevada Avenue.

Snow in the Garden (Part 2)

I hope you had a nice Valentines Day! Here are a few more lovely pictures of the Garden of the Gods that I took last weekend after we got a few inches of snow. I'll continue this series tomorrow!
