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!

Another photo or two from our brief drive through the deserted UCCS campus a couple of evenings ago. This large sculpture lives in front of one of the newer buildings (whose name escapes me -- Columbine Hall or some such, I think). I like it. I don't know who its creator is, but it reminds me very much of THIS piece downtown, so it must be the same artist.

On a side note, did you know that Colorado Springs Daily Photo is on Facebook? You can follow me HERE. Hope you have a fun weekend! I have a great wedding in Denver to document and lots of yard work to do. No rest for the wicked!

I'm getting today's post in just under the wire! Less than an hour to go before it's officially tomorrow. Pat and I have had a busy day, and this is the first chance I've had to sit down and make a blog post for you. Here's a picture of the library at UCCS. We took a cruise through the nearly deserted campus yesterday evening. It's so nice there in summer, when no one's around. Look at all those empty parking spaces! I assure you, that never happens during the school year!

An airing of grievances

I'm not getting political here on the blog, I just love a good photo op! I saw a large group of protesters in front of Senator Gardner's office on Tuesday and grabbed a picture. These folks aren't pulling any punches!

Natural Order

The latest installation of Art on the Streets was revealed recently, and I've finally gotten a glimpse of some of the new pieces. This one, called Natural Order, is by artist Kamber Sokulsky and you can find it on Tejon Street just north of Platte Avenue, near the Odyssey Gastropub.

Fly, robin, fly

Another funny bird picture! This one was taken in our backyard on July 1st. I looked outside and saw this fat little robin sitting there. He looked like he was about to tip over! It was pretty cute. I assume he was in the process of learning to fly when he ended up in our new rose garden. He picked a good spot to crash land -- Pat recently replaced all the soil, so it's nice and cushy. I got a couple of pictures of him before he flew off. He looks a little peeved at me for taking his picture in such an undignified moment (don't worry, I was quite a distance from him and used a telephoto lens). What a cute bird!

And now, for your listening pleasure...

Little bird, big house.

I spotted this cutie in Fountain Creek Regional Park a couple of weeks ago. That's a mighty big house for such a little bird!

Sunday Style!

Men in kilts: discuss. Most of my male friends wouldn't dare wear a skirt, but I think it's a bold choice. Come on, guys! Dare to be different!
