Incognito

At first glance, any hiker would have walked right on by. If you are a "geo cacher", you would have found your treasure! Though we do admit, we didn't find our treasure due to our keen geo caching skills, though they got us close. No, it was sheer awe in nature at perfect log that made us pick this one up, and viola! It was our hidden box! And we can only tell you this baby can be found on the Northside.

Frozen View

Yes, we know, you can see them from almost everywhere, and they are so Pueblo. But, each time you may see them, the stacks scattered around the city may have a new frame.

Spring is in the Air

A few tiny buds are blooming. Have you seen any yet? The pocket parks along Goodnight Ave. have some intsy buds to show you Spring is almost here!

Seeing Green

We couldn't help notice all the green food we've been seeing lately. Surely a sign of St. Patrick's Day this weekend. What green food will you be eating?

Jupiter and 4 Moons

Jupiter and 4 moons 3/13/13. The camera quality blurs the 4th moon.
We are excited and amazed to show you today's picture. While searching for the Comet PannStarrs, it was determined at that time to be a bit too overcast. So instead, a lovely gentleman from the Southern Colorado Astronomy Society pointed his telescope to Jupiter for us. Now mind you, this photo was taken through the telescope lens with an ipod. He helped me hold it in place- both lenses were tiny in the dark and hard to align, so as he held it, I snapped the picture, and viola! Well, viola! aside from that I was actually trying to use my iphone camera which was a bit sharper, but me being me, the battery went dead as we were trying to align the lenses. So, while this photo is still amazing, let me fill in the blanks. What we were actually able to see was even the brownish, reddish/white bands, and the "great red spot". Jupiter was tilted to the side, along with 4 of its aprox. 63 moons. Totally clear, brilliantly bright. Breathtaking.

The Walk

We liked the angle of the sign and buildings in shot of the River Walk Information Center from the bridge above.

Mini Stonehenge

Minding our own business (sorta) in the outskirts of the USC parking lot we came upon these neat stone arrangements. See the white ones in the background too? They look like snow, but they are white rock. In the warmer months, we'd guess its a nice sitting area, with a man made spring running through it.

Pastel on Water Color

This masterpiece by M.M.
We had to show you this piece as it so speaks to our Masthead! Created by a special young student at the Sage Art Academy. We think it's beautiful!

Quaint Factor

Its fun to see charming touches tucked here and there around town.  This carriage stop sign can be spotted around Victoria and Union Ave.

Creative Copter

On Teddy's big day today, we let him pick the photo, and he stayed true to our young audience.
Masterpieces come in all different genres. Today we thought we'd showcase these lego type creations that are all the rage with the young set. They even have clubs, meeting groups and displays at the libraries where kids can go to explore their creativity.

Naturally Distressed

We like the distressed look of the wood on this outdoor "wainscoting" over on union Ave. While we go through the rigors of sanding in our studio, this perfect weathering happened naturally.

Wilbur in Green

This lovely creation is yet another, familiar work by local artist John Wilbur. Set along the creative corridor, we spotted it by the ice arena.

4 Stories High

As you may heard us say before, any view from the Rawlings Library is a great view. If you are lucky enough to be browsing books when it snows, you feel like you are in a snow globe.
We liked this view of Union Ave. from the 4th floor. We put our toes right up to the edge and looked down. It reminded us that a picture is worth 1,000 words. What story can you make up about the view?
