A Photo Essay ~ 31 Days of Denver

I spent the month of May documenting some of the sites I have regularly seen in the twelve years I’ve lived in Denver. I have also taken the time to capture a picture or two of some places I hadn’t yet seen. And I had plenty of time to ignore the overly-photographed locations and icons that are certainly fun and kitschy, but also seen all-too-often. Here is a day-by-day account of what I paused to admire in Denver with my Nikon D40 and the two different Nikon Coolpix cameras I own.
