[VIDEO] Faces of Boulder: Shankar ~ Yoga Edition

October 2nd, 2022

  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

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

September 25th, 2022

“There are two things that sparked my space interest. The first being it was highly publicized in the 60’s when I was growing up, so I had a lot of opportunity to see what was going on. Later, my interest continued as I read and understood the technology that got people to the moon. I found the technology interesting.”    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

September 18th, 2022

Jack started playing the piano at four years old inspired by his two older sisters. Now, he goes to CU Boulder and studies music composition. He plays a little bit of a lot of things, but focuses on vocals and the piano. He hopes to either do film scoring, or possibly tour with a rock band after he graduates. Jack performs on Pearl Street occasionally. He loves doing this because it’s “a great way to connect with people is through music because there is no barrier between the musician and the audience.” Jack is about to record an album, and is going to host a release party in... Read More

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

“She’s moving to Indianapolis this weekend so I took her out for margs. I figured it’s the least I could do for her after having a friend that puts up with me.

“I left my purse at the Biergarten last night, so I should probably go pick it up later today. My brother found me looking for it in front of the Municipal Building … haha. He is my little angel. At least this breakfast burrito is pretty good. There could be worse mornings, you know?” – Erin  Read More

Meet Glenn! “I’ve been here since 11 this morning working on this. I guess I’ve been here about 5 hours now. I’ve been doing this for about 3 years or so. What I like about this artistic process is that it is using all natural elements and can be done quickly.” Thanks Glenn!  Read More

Maddie and Emma grew up together in Telluride, Colorado. The two of them are both in love with Boulder, but still say that Telluride truly has their hearts. They both love the mountain, the town, and the people. Apparently, Telluride folks are their own types. The girls claim that they can almost tell immediately when someone is from their hometown. The girls make sure to go back home and visit as often as they can. They like to go back home and get in as many days as they can at their home mountain during ski season. They also try to make it back every year for the bluegrass festival. They may... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day -Jenae!

September 6th, 2022

Jenae is a kennel tech at a Veterinary Hospital here in Boulder. She cares for all types of animals – taking them out for walks, cleaning them, feeding them etc. She started working there this past January. When I asked her why she took the job, she told me that it was because of her love for animals. Jenae grew up on a farm here in Colorado and has been surrounded by animals her whole life. Currently, she’s living in Boulder and studying at CU, but her current apartment doesn’t allow tenants to have pets. Thankfully, she gets her fix at work.  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day ~ Jenna!

September 4th, 2022

Meet Jenna I found Jenna sitting outside of Lolita’s on a nice sunny afternoon. She was in an in depth conversation with an older man who seemed to be passing on some good advice. “After I left work today, I knew I needed to gather wisdom from an elder. I ended up talking to this man who was walking by Lolita’s. He ended up teaching me a valuable piece of knowledge when I needed it most. He gave me some general guidance and pointed me in the right direction. We talked for about 15 minutes. He walked away and thought about what I said and came back half an hour later with the advice I needed.... Read More

August 27th, 2022

“I drive around neighborhoods find children who want ice cream. I don’t take tips, but some people really insist on it, so I keep it separate because there are usually kids that come up that don’t have money, or can’t afford what they want, so I just use that money for them.” – Terry  Read More

CU’s Ice History

August 27th, 2022

Students and professors at the University of Colorado, Boulder have been studying the effects of black carbon on ice and snow in ecosystems around the world. Black carbon is the byproduct of fossil fuels and wildfires and can be carried long distances via atmospheric transport. Researchers use molecular analysis and have so far proved that Greenland’s ice sheet has been effected by wildfires burning all the way in the Canadian Arctic. Wildfires are predicted to increase in the future, threatening to negatively impact other ice sheets across the globe. According to Scientific America, climate... Read More

Dogs & Cats of Boulder Pics!

August 27th, 2022

Boulder is full of animal lovers with roughly one-third of all households in the entire city owning at least one dog. Although Boulder has created several dog laws including a law that doesn’t allow animals on Pearl Street, it’s safe to say that Boulder is one of the most dog-friendly places in all of Colorado. If you just walk around town and notice how many happy dogs are running around everywhere you’ll see that Boulder’s dogs are friendly and have great personalities. This is exactly what the Faces of Boulder photography team did for a number of days, dog photography,... Read More
