Art on Fillmore Street in Denver, Colorado

This is my 100th post!  Thank you to everyone who has followed, stopped by, commented, liked, and supported lovelivingincolorado!  Here is to the next 100!

I have been inspired to post about all of the beautiful art that lays exposed but hidden (it is all in plain sight but I have walked by it a million times and never truly noticed it) throughout Cherry Creek North.  My inspiration came from this bloghttp://allisence.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/denver-art-around-town/

There is so much art ready to be recognized and appreciated all over this neighborhood and I never stop and “smell the roses.”  But tonight I did.  I will dedicate more than one post to the art around Cherry Creek North but this post will focus on Fillmore Street.

This lions sits in front of Chico’s (http://www.chicos.com/store/home.jsp)–women’s clothing and accessories.

There is detail work on the street lights.

This beautiful piece sits right outside of Starbucks (http://www.starbucks.com/)

I absolutely love the flowers scaling the ladder.  An associate of Prana (http://www.prana.com/denver) told me they actually hire an artist to do the woodwork and other features like this for the store.

A little about me and picture taking.  I am by no means a photographer but I love to take pictures.  Everyday I learn something new about my camera (like how to take night and dusk pictures).  I have had my camera for 4 years and find the instruction booklet annoying!  So, I ask people for help or I just take a picture a zillion times–adjusting settings until what I like appears on my screen.  I own a Nikon D60 and it is the nicest camera I have ever owned.
