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.

Weigel's Dairy

This dairy farm is still in operation. It almost looks to be pulled from the pages of a storybook illustration. Every spring the yellow flowers bloom, and the beauty of it always takes my breath away.

If that weren't huge, I'd say that it actually looks cute. :)

Beautiful shot! And I love those little yellow flowers in the field.

Hope said...

Thanks you mean the size of the photo is too large? I've been wondering about the size format of my photos.
