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.

Go Bulldogs!

Isn't high school football the best? Daughter was fascinated with the school mascot. Photo taken 2 years ago at Bearden High School in Knoxville.

Love the mascot, looks like a slobberer.

Hope, I don't know how you make everything look like such a classic, American shot. It's like you are the official United States Family Life photographer! This is great, as usual. I love your little girl's big, wondering eyes.

Adorable image. You call yourslef a point and shoot non profesional. From a photographer, you might want to have a re think. You've got some good work here.

Your daughter is so adorable. I could see her face on the cover of "Family Fun." Great shot!

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..."
