How many pictures did you take this summer in Colorado Springs? Probably two dozen of my visit out here that made me move out here.

What snapshot sticks in your mind when you think of Colorado Springs? Garden of the Gods.

How could the city be more beautiful? Take care of the homeless people.

What's the weirdest thing you've seen here lately? People with three-inch-long crucifixes around their necks.

How many pictures did you take this summer in Colorado Springs? Usually, when I take pictures, I just shoot people. And I've taken probably, this summer, maybe two or three rolls.

What's the weirdest thing you've seen here lately? Probably the sculpture of that Dutchman or whatever the hell that is.

What were you doing the 24 hours between July 24 and 25? I think I was out of town. I think I was in El Paso.

How many pictures did you take this summer in Colorado Springs? I probably took maybe a roll of film total, mostly of friends and family. Generally, if I take pictures in the downtown area, though, I like to take black-and-whites of the back alleys of the iron work and the, just, backs of buildings.

What snapshot sticks in your mind when you think of Colorado Springs? Pikes Peak, mostly.

How could the city be more beautiful? The biggest problem I see is the urban-sprawl issue, and that they need to really re-centralize things to the downtown area.

What were you doing the 24 hours between July 24 and 25? I must have been in California, but I don't know what I was doing. Probably laundry.
