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.

Balance Beam Success

Daughter successfully crosses the balance beam . . . again wearing flip-flops.

Balance beam success jump started my brain and I suddenly saw myself, like this picture, up in an old hay mow walking on the beams high above the dirt floor below. One slip and I wouldn't be typing this. LOL

I love your photograph as it shows what kids do best. Have fun.

My Halloween memories

I could have written the same post as Abe above. I will add that she sure is cute. I know I have said it before, but she is.

Maybe we will see her in the Olympics in a few years?

Congrats to your little one....but I was so impressed by your photography skills! The composition and colors of this photo are wonderful, right down to her skirt matching the playground equipment....and it is so crisp! Love it!

I agree, you/your daughter have an uncanny ability to match outfits with your background and surroundings. Another great kid pic.
