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.

Fort Kid ~ Swings

"I want to touch the clouds, Mama." said Daughter.

I remember playing on the swings when I was about that age!
The Three Rivers Rambler and other Knox County activities are free to Knox County residents at certain times during the year. I'll look for a link about that. Earlier this year, I took a trip on the Star of Knoxville on the free day.
Yes, the farmers market is at Laurel Church of Christ on Kingston Pike every Tuesday and Friday, 3-6p each day.

Thanks, MyKnoxville! Thanks for the info on The Three Rivers Rambler and the Star of Knoxville. I've never heard about the free day for Knox Co. residents. I would be very interested in learning more about this! Also, thanks for the info on the Farmers Market at Laurel Church of Christ. Unfortunately, I work during those hours and then have to rush to pick up the kids at daycare and probably wouldn't have a chance to check it out. Maybe someday....

I agree with kate -- this is a GREAT photograph. The structure of those buildings juxtaposed against that darling girl in her pink jacket. WOW!

This is the joy of childhood perfectly captured.
