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.

Brother's Protection

Photo taken at our hometown high school football field . . . during flag football games.

My son was only 5 years old in this photo and my daughter was 22 months old. But even at this young age, our son still looked out for the safety of his little sister. What I love about this photo is my son's hand resting protectively on his little sister. I can imagine a similar scene when my children are in their teen years and my son will still be looking out for his little sister's best interests.

I received a blog award from Leedra at Photography by Leedra.

Thanks so much Leedra! Now, I have decided to pass this blog award on to some wonderful CDP blogs which have posted some beautiful Autumn photos. Enjoy!

And the award goes to . . .

Many thanks for the award, Hope!
I just happened to be driving by St. Paul's yesterday when I saw all the pumpkins and knew I had to stop for a photo. I will pass this award along in the autumn days to come.

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..."
