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.

What a picture this is. It takes the prize. I am glad you joined CDP too as I can see your photos are almost in a class by themselves. I have four blogs and it keeps me busy but at my age I need to keep busy. LOL

Thanks for visiting my blog. Glad you liked what you saw there.

This is spectacular, Hope! The diagonal lines, the late afternoon sun, the stop motion of your beautiful little one, the colors, the composition... it's just gorgeous!

I can't wait to go through your archives. You have such a good eye.

Hope said...

Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement. As I stated in my "About Me" at the top of my blog, I am not a pro photographer.

I am a wife and mom who has always had a love for photography and that loves shines through especially when photographing my beloved children. Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm glad you are enjoying my photos.

A very sweet photo. I love these 'everyday moments'. They are the best when seen years down the road.

What a nice photo. I haven't been to the UT gardens in a couple of years; it might be time for a return trip.

From de Cafe said...

Hope said...

to From De Cafe....yes, these photos are taken either with my Nikon Coolpix S600 or my older Nikon Coolpix 5900. For many, many years I used a Canon AE-1 Program film camera. Only since 2005 have I used my little digitals.

Also, thanks for the compliment on my good eye. A wonderful doggy comment!
