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.

Climb Every Rock Wall

The Knoxville Zoo has a wonderful play and exploration area for children called Kids Cove. This climbing wall is part of that area. My son loves to climb this wall! Concentration and determination help him conquer the challenge . . . as well as those socks. Required climbing equipment, he says.

Looks like he is serious about climbing.

So, I can see you have a little Tarzan in your family! :-)
Your previous photo is awesome!!! Great shot!

Boise Diva said...

A great idea for the play zone and to help kids burn off the energy they've accumulated while just looking at animals.

Tanya said...

That is quite a look of determination on his face!

Looks like he meant to have fun. Nice shot.

Firefly said...

Quite a serious look on his face. I wonder if its from the climbing or mom taking a picture

Laurie said...

Hope, this is so great! You'll be showing this to your son's future dates -- as he blushes. Look at that fierce expression? Just wonderful. What a shot.

Your son must have gotten the measure of climbing ability "Louis" didn't receive.

(Editor to "Louis:" I've never seen a climbing vache, nor do I want to...

"Louis" to Editor: The hooves you are about to feel climbing up your back will be mine...)

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..."
