First Day of Spring

first day of spring, originally uploaded by thrivestyle.

I have been traveling like crazy...which I love...but leaves little time to photograph Denver.

Back in Denver, Spring has sprung and this little gem was poking out of the ground when I walked up to get coffee this morning. I love the contrast of the winter browned grasses and the vibrant colors of the flower and the new grass. Speaks to all that spring offers us in the way of new beginnings.

Of course, as only Denver could's first day of spring is 65 degrees...tomorrow and Friday snow are predicted.

I hope this little flower survives the cold and continues to bring forth spring beauty.

Sharped Dress Man

One of the great things about living in a city is the characters you stumble upon. This daper man was out strolling on a beautiful sunny February day downtown.

He strolled with purpose and confidence. I wonder what his story is. How that hat makes him feel. Where he was coming from or going to. Where he's originally from and where he'd rather be.

Just When the snow starts to melt...

Its supposed to start snowing again. I took this picture of a gutter downtown. It was so warm the snow was melting really fast creating a real flood of water as you can tell by the splash you see in the photo.

Denver Restaurant Week

Today is the start of Denver Restaurant Week. It is a seven-day celebration of the culinary scene in Denver. For the week of Feb. 23-29, 2008, participating restaurants will offer a multi-course dinner for the fixed price of $52.80 for two, or $26.40 for one (not including tax or gratuity). 5280 is a reference to our altitude 5,280 feet or 1 mile...hence the mile high city.
