Straight as an Arrow

Downtown off of Victoria St.

What is so interesting you ask? Besides the lovely shade of blue? We liked the door handle.
Can you see it? Its an arrow carved into the metal. Nice.

Cupola (yes, we have one!)

 City / Memorial Hall, after aprox. 94 years, is undergoing restoration.
Did you think you might be in Rome for a second? This beautiful cupola is found at our very own City Hall building. Renovations started in Summer 2011, and we are looking forward to the finished masterpiece. I wonder if they'll give us a tour?

Cool Treats on a Windy Day

The heavy winds didn't keep EVERYONE inside. Downtown's restaurants, coffee shops and yogurt stops were bustling with kids enjoying Spring Break...

Veteran's Bridge

We agree.  Pueblo is "Home of the Heroes". Not only do we have a tribute to those honored with The Congressional Medal of Honor, an upcoming photo here at "Pueblo Picture A Day", we have the Veteran's Bridge at Gateway Park to honor all of our veterans. For today's picture let's have a look at some of the veterans close to PPAD's heart. We are proud and thankful for you all!

Central High School

The location from "Where are We Wednesday?" was Central High School! The historic
100+ year old building showcases these crowns atop its columns up towards the 6th floor along the sides and above its front entrance. Thanks for guessing everyone!

Pike's Peak

View from HWY 50 & McCulloch PW.
This won't be the only post of Pike's Peak. It still catches our breath on a clear day. We like to be surprised how you just can't miss the view from different parts of the city.

St Patrick's Church, circa 1882

"What God has united, let no man divide" -- Father Michael Byrne, March 19, 1988.
This historical building, built in 1882 has been closed for about 4 years, but still looks to be in good shape.

Launch of "Front Door Fridays"!

Let's kick off "Front Door Friday" with ours!

When I was at Clemson, we had this project where we had to design and then print a lithograph (using a a litho  press bigger than bus!). It was to be inspired by a poster of choice, but translated into our own interpretation.

Some students did remakes of those famous 70's ones with the animals and a catch phrase, like the cat stuck a tree saying "Hang in there", some did nature, "pin ups" or cars.

Mine was the "Doors of Clemson".  It was the front doors of all the historical buildings on campus - Inspired by posters you may have seen in the more touristy areas of different cities, though specifically the historical doors of Charleston.

Our "Masthead"

We've had a few questions about our blog masthead. You know, the header at the top?
Those urns and gargoyle/eagle(?) are beautiful aren't they? I grew up looking at these from practically our front yard every day, so it was a natural choice. Though the header may change with the seasons, for now it was the perfect fit. These statues are at the entrance of City Park. If someone knows about their history, please comment and let us all know. They are very old and I don't know the last time they have been painted, but up close, you can see they are peeling- which I think ads to their beauty. Some people would use the words "peeling"  and "tarnished". Here at "Picture A Day" we say they are perfectly "PATINA".  : )

60, 70, 75, 44, 34

Aberdeen Neighborhood Adopt-a-Park volunteers planted over 1,000 bulbs last fall.
This week shows them breaking ground. Yeah! It worked!
Do a drive by the 3 small parks in a few weeks to view them in full bloom!
What are those numbers? 60, 70, 75, 44, 34. No, not a lock combination or winning lotto numbers. Its the Weather Channel's forecast for Pueblo this week. Crazy right? Starting out the week working in our yards wearing shorts, and ending it up bundled up and sledding. That's Springtime in Pueblo for you.
Our picture today highlights some signs of spring we have been spying. What signs of Spring are you seeing?

A sign of Spring?

The Spring Runoff 5k, 10k run/walk was this weekend.
