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.

University of TN ~ Gardens

The UT Gardens holds a special place in my heart. In the early days of our marriage my husband and I used to meet on our lunch hour here to eat and talk. We decided on our daughter's name here. The UT Gardens are constantly changing, so it's always an adventure to explore all the beautiful pathways and trails.

Hiya Hope! Knoxville Girl checking in. CDP is a great group, you'll meet a lot of really interesting people who know a lot about photography, and others (like me) who are just starting. Welcome!
I like the big format on your photos.

Hi Knoxville Girl! I've looked at your blog too, and enjoyed the photos and the writing.

I call myself a point & shoot photographer and use a Nikon Coolpix S600 and sometimes a Nikon Coolpix 5900. I have created this blog for fun and enjoyment and also to share my view of the city of Knoxville.

I also like the big format of the photos, but may have to adjust some of them if they seem too large.

Thanks again for the comment.

Thanks Tanya for the comment and stopping by. I think she's cute, too, of course. Our kids are accustomed to the constant presence of a camera having seen them since birth! LOL!

"With gratitude and great pleasure I would like to pass the award to these photography bloggers:

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..."
