It's Colorado Springs...

This advertisement for the Fine Arts Center expansion made me LOL in real life.

These people were eating some La Baguette in Old Colorado City.

I went to coffee and tea zone for coffee. When they asked hot or cold and I chose cold, I expected it to be iced. Instead it was like a smoothie and had a plastic cover over it with some sort of life lesson about the virtues of educating ones self, even if it is at times unpleasant. It was titled "Some People." I felt enlightened and inspired. Or Something.

I love photo threads, i'd merge them all to create a single CO Springs Photo thread, Except this seems to be the only photo thread dedicated specifically to Colorado Springs, so since I cannot find "another CS photo thread, i'm going to edit the title of this, and coronate it THE Colorado Springs Photo thread :D

Seems like a logical idea until we can get more activity from Denver forumers.

"Blues Under the Bridge." The Colorado Avenue Bridge in Downtown Colorado Springs to be exact. My photography sucked harder than usual tonight, so just a handful of crappy pics... I was pleased with the turnout.

In The Colorado Springs Development thread, I promised photos of the fine arts center expansion. Turns out I don't have those available just now, but here are some of my favorite Colorado Springs photos I've taken over the past couple of months. I may also post my photos from this years Pride Fest in a seperate thread.

All of the following photo's were taken in Downtown Colorado Springs.

OK...these are a few years old, but they're mine, all mine.

The view out my hotel window (Residence Inn off of Interquest):

Some of those famous "rooftops" that the retailers are following out to the Powers Blvd. area. I, too, was guilty of following them back in 2004 and 2005:

Some of those guilty retailers at First & Main Town Centre:

I found this quite refreshing...most airports charge you for the service:

Until I saw this while departing COS, I didn't realize the USAF had F-14's in their inventory:

Peterson AFB:

Some of that sprawl east of Powers:

This is kinda off-topic, but was in the same series of photos...talk about an organized mess - this is Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport ... perfectly designed to incur delays (unlike Denver International):
