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'm With the Band

Another photo from GreekFest . . . I liked this guy's humor and his music!

I guess thats for when he does not have his instrument in his hands.

Tanya said...

Looks like so much fun! They had a Greek Fest here a couple weeks back and somehow we missed it. I had been planning to go then totally forgot, ugh!
Did you eat a Gyros? :)

Dayton, Ohio just had or finished their Renaissance Festival that has been going on for ages now. It is always a big success because, I think, the people are all dressed in period costumes, sell period stuff and eat period food.

I hope your festival is a success as well. Your photography is nice for these tired eyes to see.

Jackie said...

What a wonderful, happy shot! They look like they're doing the Hokey-Cokey.

Denise said...
