The Delta Senior Center is honored to display the photography of Spring Phillips in the dining hall located at 247 Meeker Street.
Spring Phillips grew up in Oak Creek but moved to Texas in 1994 with her husband, Monte, who was an experienced photographer. Spring became interested in taking photographs of the variety of migrating birds that visited her backyard feeders so she could identify each species. This was the beginning of her interest in photography. She and her husband lived near many wildlife refuge areas and spent day trips and long weekends exploring and honing their photographic skills. Sadly, Spring's husband passed away about 18 months ago.
Spring moved back to Colorado to spend more time with her mother and family. She lives in Cedaredge now and is learning about the area and making new friends. She has begun taking new photographs and is developing and refining her skills in processing the images she captures. When asked to describe how it feels to capture the "perfect" shot she says, "You just have that 'nailed it!' feeling."
Spring's work will be on display through June. The Senior Center is open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Thrift Shop in the center is open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Lunch is served at noon in the hall. Donation for lunch is $3.50 for those 60 years old and older on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and $3 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All are welcome to view this display of Spring Phillips' work.
