Street Art 1, Colorado Springs

Part of a stunning series painted on the side of this warehouse in the "Depot Art District." This wall faces Interstate 25 in downtown Colorado Springs. Taken 18 July 2010 just before a spectacular thunderstorm arrived.

None other than the ever faithful Canon PowerShot A590.

Il Vicino, Colorado Springs

The 'Hood. Between the Ritz on the right and a sweet international wine shop on the left (from the camera's angle), and blue sky beyond, this irresistible stroke of retro demanded my attention. Taken 18 July 2010 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

None other than the trusty Canon PowerShot A590.

A cheerful sunflower (well, at least it made me cheerful; it may not have been all that cheerful itself, but I'd like to think so) outside our back door. September 2009.

Biltmore - Coral Gables

The Biltmore in Coral Gables, FL (Miami). Taken in September 2008. It was overcast that day, so the photograph is not quite as striking as I had hoped, but with an edifice like this one you can almost do no wrong. OK, I know, there're about a gazillion ways one could do it wrong, starting with using a cheapie drug store camera on an overcast day. But hey, having this picture is still better than just buying a postcard or having to rely solely on my memory.

Spiral Stare

This is a spiral staircase inside the Casa Bonita restaurant in Denver. Amazing place if you ever get the chance to check it out! Taken with my Canon PowerShot A590 in June 2010.

Backyard Scream

Here's a little SCREAM (apologies to Edvard Munch) in celebration of the inauguration of my photo blog. This is one of the planks in the fence around my backyard. Taken from the inside of my yard with my trusty Canon PowerShot A590, just two days ago - 11 July 2010.
