What’s Up Boulder, Colorado?
My name is Travis Bildahl and I am excited to be the newest edition to the AboutBoulder.com photography team. My intentions are to bring exciting stories and photography from around Boulder to you through the Faces of Boulder Project and the stories that capture the personality of our city.
I am going to travel to iconic places around Boulder to capture the stories of the most interesting people our city has to offer and share them with you. Through my photography you will see the places that bring our city to life as well as the places that go by unnoticed.
My first post is about a very popular event that happens every wednesday and saturday during the warmer months of the year in Central Park: The Boulder Farmers’ Market.
So enjoy the pictures and think about how you want to get involved with this project.

After a whole afternoon of talking to vendors and shoppers we went to the equally exciting Central Park located right beside the Farmers’ Market. We found people relaxing, enjoying food from the market and doing physical activities that were out of the ordinary. We stopped to talk to a group there called ACT that was practicing theatrical performance art.
This is the Dragon, a pose created by the theatrical group ACT. They meet at Central Park every wednesday from 2 until 5 to grace people with the beauty of their poses. Photo: Travis Bildahl
The Dragon isn’t complete until all of the essential props are in place. Photo: Travis Bildahl
