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.

Morning Mist

I was met with this serene and peaceful scene on a recent morning after dropping my daughter off at preschool. This field sits across from the preschool. The beauty of the sky and misty fog made me pause as I was getting into my car to rush off to work. I stopped for a moment, reached for my ever-present camera that I carry with me, and took this snapshot. I'm glad I captured this moment. And I wasn't late for work after all.

Isn't it great to be on this daily photo adventure? You take time to notice things that normally you would pass by.

Hope said...

Yes, I am looking more closely since starting this blog and exploring people's daily city blogs. It's a great adventure of discovery and awareness!

Gorgeous...I almost expect to see lions and zebras in the background like an African safari!

Isn't it wonderful to stop and just breathe, look around and see the gifts we're given every day? Bet everyone else was dropping off kids and zooming away. Their loss. Thanks for sharing this photo.
I love the mists in autumn.

I love the stripes of those colors -- THOSE AMAZING COLORS! This is such a graphic, modern composition -- but such a timeless subject. Hope, your photos just blow my mind. I really love your blog.
