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!

Black and White #2


I'll be posting black and white images all week. This building is next door to the one I showed you yesterday.

Black and White #1


A few weeks ago I decided to blog images featuring the color red for seven days. Now I'll be posting black and white images for this entire week. Yesterday's Sunday Style shot was a teaser.

Here's one taken in an alley downtown. I love this old building and wish my studio could be located there.

Sunday Style!


I think punk shows are the best for people watching. I was hanging around near the merch table after the X show in Denver a month ago when I saw this young girl sitting on the floor. The ratty old Chucks caught my eye, so I asked for a picture. I've certainly gone through a few pairs of those in my time. Some things will never go out of style, like X and Chucks. 😊

More fall prettiness


Just a few more from Mueller State Park, taken last Saturday the 7th. It was a perfect day for picture taking!

Skywatch Friday


Last Friday I showed you a picture of Mueller State Park taken on Monday, October 7th. On Saturday I went back to the park to do some portraits, and it was even more spectacular! I'll post more pretty pictures tomorrow.

For lots of great Skywatch Friday images from bloggers all over, click HERE. Have a great weekend!

Untitled


Another random street scene downtown. This was taken on October 4th in front of the Mining Exchange, on Pikes Peak Avenue. I like that lady standing at the curb, digging in her purse for her keys. I have most certainly been that lady on many occasions. Ha!

A secret garden


Last week my mom asked me to drive her to a friend's house, CJ. As it turned out CJ and her husband Ken have a beautiful backyard and garden. Glad I brought my camera with me! I love it when people have a perfectly nice front yard but an AMAZING backyard. It's kind of like a secret grotto, a private little paradise. Ken made many of the things that you see in these pictures. What a handy guy! (Not to mention creative.) And CJ's a great gardener! In fact, I went back there today to give her a few plants from my own garden. Maybe next year I'll get a chance to see how they're doing!
This little contemplation garden is dedicated to CJ's late mother, who coincidentally was my neighbor for years. Her favorite color was blue.

I would love to have a bench like this but it's one of a kind -- Ken made it!




There's even a water feature! I'd love to have a water feature in my backyard some day. Something Japanese garden-y.
