If you have lived in Denver or even visited you probably have some story involving Colfax Avenue. Named after Schuyler Colfax the street is also US 40 for the 26 miles it runs through the Denver Metro area. As I was walking down Colfax today towards downtown, it was a picture wanting to happen and thus the Day 18 image. With my Canon G9 point and shoot I took some images in the late morning sun trying to give a good sense of the street. As I was just east of downtown from that area the State Capitol building is always something which is thought about as Colfax passes to the north of the building.
Now Colfax does vary along the 26 mile stretch and an effort to change the reputation and image is always in progress along different parts of the street which have been successful. But to a lot of people this street will always be thought of in the same manner.
What’s your story regarding Colfax?
Stop by tomorrow for Day 19 of Thirty Day 2008.
