Photos: Fifteen Beautiful Colorado Paintings on Postcards

More images below.
In many ways, postcards are becoming something of a lost art -- but even rarer are postcards of places like Colorado that feature paintings rather than photos. We found a slew of examples on ArtFire -- if you're unfamiliar with the site, think of it is an even artsier Etsy -- and they're absolutely eye-popping. Check out our fifteen favorites below, and be sure to click on the links if you'd like to add one or more of them to your Colorado pride collection.

More photos below.
When the office of Denver Clerk Debra Johnson came up with the idea of a monthly event dubbed Free Wedding Wednesdays, the folks there had no idea the first one would correspond with same-sex marriage becoming legal in Colorado owing to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to punt on the issue, allowing lower-court rulings in favor of such nuptials to stand. To mark the occasion, Denver mayor Michael Hancock officiated two ceremonies, uniting Fran and Anna Simon (the first couple to receive a civil union in Colorado) and Steve Grauberger and Randall Burgess, whose marriage licence was denied under an injunction put in place over the summer. Our Brandon Marshall was on hand to capture the happy occasion. Continue to see a sampling of his shots and click to view the complete Denver Welcomes Same-Sex Marriage With Free Weddings slide show.

Since then, the messages have been amplified by more posts celebrating differences at an institution that's more diverse than it may seem at first blush. Check out twenty fresh examples below.

Photos: Race for the Cure 2014 Attendance Stabilizes But Still Hasn't Rebounded

Photos courtesy of the Susan G. Komen Colorado Facebook page. More pics below.
Attendance at yesterday's Race for the Cure in downtown Denver was estimated at 30,000. Even though the total is roughly equal to the number of participants in 2013, the sum still must be considered progress given sharp declines the preceding two years: Approximately 50,000 took part 2011and 40,000 in 2012, with the dip attributed to a (since-reversed) decision by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to end its partnership with Planned Parenthood a couple of years back. Still, photos from the Susan G. Komen Colorado Facebook page show that those who took to the streets early yesterday were in high spirits. Check out a sampling of photos below, and to see more, click here.

Photos: Can You Guess the Theme of This Week's Denver Cruiser Ride?

Photo by Marissa Shevins. See more below.
Judging by the photos our Marissa Shevins brought back from this week's Denver Cruiser Ride, we might have had a tough time guessing the theme if we didn't already know what it was. Some riders followed it pretty closely, others tweaked it in interesting ways and a slew of folks simply did their own thing. We answer the question at the bottom of the post. Check out the photos below.
