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.

Bird Nest ~ Kids Cove at Knoxville Zoo

The kids pretending to be baby birds.


JM said...

That is so cool! Kids seem to are enjoying their new character :-)

Tanya said...

What a great place to play and pretend!! A really fun photo today!!

Virginia said...

What a neat thing to have at a zoo! Your baby birds are adorable.

Enchanting photo today. Thank you for your compliment on my Daily Photo site for Costa Rica. Your bird nest in the park would be very appropriate for Costa Rica, since there are more bird species in tiny Costa Rica than in the USA and Canada combined. Our little town has only one small, modestly equipped park, but someone has painted butterflies on the wall and trash cans around the park. A bird nest would fit in quite well.

Your kids crack me up. And I love that banner photo (again)! I just realized she is looking at Mickey and Mickey is looking at her. Sweet.

Denise said...

I always love the photos of your kids. What a hoot this one is, sitting in a bird's nest. Great photos.

Naturegirl said...

Very cute!

Boise Diva said...

How fun, did they get any snacks for their bird begging?

Laurie said...

Honestly Hope, I wish you could photograph my little girl! You always capture the joy of childhood so perfectly. This is another wonderful shot.

I need to visit the Knoxville Zoo. Lived here 37 years, and have not been in 30 years. This is so cute for the children. They are adorable acting like baby birds.

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..."
