Faces of Boulder ~ Pic of the Day!

March 26th, 2023

Meet Abby! Abby came to Boulder from New York for the fresh air and the healthy lifestyle Boulder cultivates; what’s kept her here are the many friends she’s made, the concerts, and her newfound independence. Abby contributes her individuality, independence, and grounded character to her experiences at boarding school, which she attended for five years in Connecticut. “It really made me independent and able to come to college so far away from home,” she says in response to one of the biggest lessons she learned while in boarding school. Currently, Abby attends CU; spending any possible... Read More

A: “We once once made a deal; I was going to join cross country if she would join the high school musical.” E: “I did it for a little while…” A: “…But then she quit. My friends and I all felt betrayed! hahaha.” E: “Yea and now we mostly hang out making fun of each other and doing homework.” What are you both studying? E: “I’m studying bio-engineering. I know a few disabled people in my life… and they made me want to improve the lives of anyone who is disabled. It’s easy to find a path in bio-engineering that... Read More

[VIDEO] Faces of Boulder: Shankar ~ Yoga Edition

March 8th, 2023

  Since the beginning of The Faces of Boulder Project the AboutBoulder photography team has primarily focused our attention on multiple people for every online post, but this edition of the Faces of Boulder will be different because it’s all about one very special person who lives here in Boulder, Shankar Moghe. Travis Bildahl and I ran into Shankar at the Eben G. Fine Park on a nice afternoon and realized right away that we had encountered a very unique individual that was self-actualized. Shankar Moghe stretches out his legs on his mat in Eben G. Fine Park to cool down after doing... Read More

“My dad was a big believer in taking chances. He used to always say, “If you don’t ask you don’t get,” and I really try to live by that. Partly to honor his memory, but also because life’s too short to not take risks.” -Samantha  Read More

[VIDEO] Faces of Boulder: ONE Vibration

March 2nd, 2023

This image captures Ryan Post playing a TerraPan down on the Pearl Street Mall . His goal is to  raise enough money to introduce 6000 of them into schools around the Boulder area. His idea is that if he gets enough people to play the same note at the same time with this instrument there will be a unified vibration that could connect the people on the planet for a second and create peace. Ryan is organizing an event at Red Rocks Amphitheatre later this year to gather with thousands of people playing TerraPans. Here is a video to get an idea of what a TerraPan sounds like:    Read More

Water in my opinion is the key to life. Makenna adds to this by stating that water is to say the least, relaxing and peaceful. Peace being something that we as humans have fought for and looked for now for centuries. Makenna, being a CU graduate, presents the idea that we’ve been looking for something that has been right here in front of our faces. Water! Though she never grew up near the ocean, she spent quite a while on Lake Michigan. There she realized that the water is peace, the water is life, the water is Home! Thanks Makenna!  Read More

“Skating in general is an individual activity so people might think that there isn’t much of a culture or community, but we do come together. I remember when friend of mine was going through his final stages of ALS. To keep him out of a nursing home, some of the Boulder skating community came together to help fund the medical care so that he could live out his final days in the comfort of this own home. Skaters might have been thought of as punks, not educated, and be up to no good but I think the story has changed.” -Sam    Read More

“Boulder has it’s own way of bringing happiness into people’s lives. The atmosphere is incomparable. It’s an escape, but the good kind. Just as you can hop on your bike and escape from things, boulder can help with your own personal escape. So take a moment, hop on your bike, and take your own ride to your own escape.” Thanks Daisy!  Read More

Jack moved to Boulder four years ago after growing up in Buffalo, New York, a much different atmosphere. “The people here are so active, and don’t look at you funny while running around in short shorts,” Jack comments on the people of Boulder. 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

Caroline, “I’m from Minneapolis Minnesota and I have family that lives close by. I grew up skiing  Keystone for so long that I just felt like a draw towards Colorado. My passions are that I really love learning languages and learning about other cultures in the language as I grew and I’ve been learning about different cultures and now I am starting Spanish. I really love adventures and waking up every morning in Boulder is inspiring, and arguably life changing. I want to go out there and I want to explore and maybe draw something in nature. I think learning other languages... Read More
