Faces of Boulder ~ Madii

October 5th, 2022

Moving to Colorado from Arkansas, Madii is a true to the bone theater gal.

Through crafting and sewing Madii hopes to “help other people’s dreams and visions come true.” Thank you Madii!  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Peter

September 28th, 2022

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. His favorite places to perform were Prague and Vietnam.... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

September 21st, 2022

Some people shy away from cameras – others jump in front of them. Peter Hurley, a world-renowned headshot photographer, has put his own spin on this. He believes that a good portrait requires that the camera doesn’t mess with the subject, but that the subject messes with the camera. Once someone loses sight of the insecurities provoked by the camera, they start to perform for it. People start to play with the camera. They stare into it as if they were playing head games. They treat it as if it were a person looking at them – a person they want to make an impression on. These two girls were... Read More

Meet Nyah ‘The didgeridoo is an extension of my soul, so I suffered when I lost it.” Nyah has a spiritual connection with the beautiful sounding wind instrument, the didgeridoo. Nyah first saw one when she was in elementary school, and was immediately drawn to the sound it made. She didn’t see one again until she was visiting San Francisco and saw one that was beautifully made with mushrooms carved on to look like they were wildly flowing from the base. When Nyah was at Mt. Shasta another time for Shasta Solstice, there was a gathering of people and she came across a man with a didgeridoo... Read More

Faces of Boulder: Searching for Gold

Joseph Wirth and I happened to run into two very recognizable faces, Trapper and the High Plains Roller.
