Knoxville Daily Photo will post one photo per day taken from the Knoxville/Knox County, Tennessee area. Knoxville is the city of my birth, the place where I work, and the largest city near our hometown. It's a wonderful community in which to raise our family. It's really a beautiful place . . . . at least I think so.

I am not a professional photographer; I call myself a point & shoot photographer. I have had a genuine love for and interest in photography since childhood. My camera is a Nikon Coolpix S600 ~ which I love for many reasons that I won't list here. Sometimes I use my old camera which is a Nikon Coolpix 5900.

Photography is something that I enjoy immensely. My photographs & albums are treasured above all other material things I own. The memories that are captured and preserved through my camera are so precious.

I am glad that I have discovered City Daily Photo and started a photo blog. It's an honor to share my little corner of the world with those who find themselves here. Enjoy looking around my blog, and welcome to all who visit.

I am ready for it, nice shot.

Tanya said...

I'm dreaming of summer days too. Love the colors in this!

Tanya said...

Hope, don't even worry about it! I was just making sure you were ok! I know, the blog can be so time consuming. I hope you won't quit, I'll miss you. I've thought of cutting back too. Big hugs to you!

Hope said...

Thanks so much, Tanya.

Mary said...

A wonderful sky to start the year with!

Hope, I certainly hope you don't stop doing your wonderful blog. My girlfriend and I were just discussing our favorite blog photographers and we quickly agreed you are one of the best. You've got talent! Your shots are always so clear, straight and very creative. And we love your kids! Please don't stop. Thanks for dropping by...

Hope said...

Ken Mac...thanks so much to you and your girlfriend. Your words mean so much to me. I almost stopped my blog with yesterday's post and then decided at the last moment to post my rainbow for today.

I just find myself with so little time as most of us do struggle with this issue on a daily basis. I do enjoy my blog so much and visiting others' blogs, too. I will see what I can do.

Once again, sincere thanks for your words.

Beautiful Rainbow!!!

Nice pic happy new year

I have been reading you may be stopping. Well I hope you're not. If it just a matter of commenting on others that's the problem put that thought right out of your head. You images are plenty enough comment. I genuinely think you have a keen eye and it would be a shame not to see both you and Knoxville Girl posting.
Love the rainbow, it's bright and sharp.

Rambling Round said...

Just lovely, Hope.
I haven't commented much lately, either...just so busy during the holidays, but I do enjoy your comments and blog. Hope you find a way to continue.

I love rainbows and yours is gorgeous! It is so vivid!

The last brilliant rainbow around here presented itself when I only had my camera phone and not my good camera.

Your shot is crisp, clear, and beautiful - and so is the pic of your daughter above it!

The Arthur Clan said...

I'm dreaming of summer too! :)

Love your photo and I especially love the rainbow capture. Beautiful!

Arija said...

ou are dreaming of them and we have them, it is dry and all the grass has browned off so I prefer your dream to my reality.
Nice rainbow.

Leedra said...

Love the rainbow! Saw a comment on another blog, I hope you don't totally give the blog up, I have noticed some people have cut down how much they are posting. Is that an option? Some decisions can only be made by the person, and this is one that no other person can help with.

PJ said...

I'm glad to see you back, Hope. You must have had quite a time in Disney World.
It seems as though a lot of people are dreaming about warmer weather. Love the rainbow.

Hope of Knoxville Daily Photo. Hope can squeeze images out of her Nikon Coolpix that will astonish you. The photographs of her kids capture the essence of childhood and a mother's love with the same poignancy and joy of the paintings of Mary Cassatt..."
