Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

March 29th, 2020

Every face has its own story, but this one tells two. This is a true face of Boulder, Colorado. A face that can always be found downtown. A face that has its own spirit and lives as part of another. A face that really is a window to the soul. This isn’t only the face of a man wise beyond his years; this is part of Boulder’s collective, figurative “face”. A character that gives Boulder some of its own character. This face tells a story of the people who live here. People who are creative, active, and appreciative. People with depth. People who welcome creations such as this one into the... Read More

He was drawn to Colorado for the outdoors, and loves exploring new hiking trails and getting lost in the mountains. Along with the physical exercise, he enjoys tasting all the beers Colorado has to offer, although he can’t choose a favorite because he doesn’t want “any breweries to kick him out.” The laid back ambiance of Boulder helps him... Read More

Colorado Yoga Teacher Spotlight: Meet Brett Mehlman

July 21st, 2019

It’s 6 a.m., and slivers of sunlight peep through the large, elongated windows of Brett Mehlman’s Denver-based studio apartment, greeting him as he begins his morning. A fresh glass of water is the first thing on his mind, followed by a guided meditation. As a busy yoga instructor, an established morning ritual is key for Brett. Preparing for his first client of the day, he concocts a blend of ginger, turmeric, black pepper, and skullcap for tea. “The trick here, is to add coconut milk,” he says with a grin, walking across the plant-lined floor to the kitchen cupboard. “Coconut milk... Read More

Meet Johnnia!

May 20th, 2019

Meet Johnnia! Johnnia is a local artist who has been designing t-shirts and painting in Boulder since she moved here from the Miami, Florida area in 2017. Johnnia has been drawing ever since she was little, and has always seen the importance of developing her own style. She always desired to be more than, “a human copy machine,” as she puts it, continually striving to create a unique portrayal of even the most mundane objects rather than trying to create a perfect replica of something. Johnnia’s father introduced her to art at an early age. Her father was a self-taught welder who would... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Peter

May 20th, 2019

You can catch Peter on Pearl Street performing his specialty of juggling with both his hands and feet. Starting at a young age, Peter loved to juggle: but with a twist. He competed in hacky sack competitions and won the world tournament multiple times. This taught him to juggle first with his feet, then his hands; now he juggles with both at the same time. Peter started to preform shows in San Fransisco in 1994, without know what he was doing, but eventually figured it out and hasn’t stopped. He’s preformed all over the world.

Jack and his friends were enjoying a nice day outside. They’re all students at CU and told me that they like to get away from campus sometimes.

March 22nd, 2019

“I went to Haiti for a mission trip and stayed in La Victoire. I would give the kids my phone and they would go off and take pictures for me.
