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.

I Wish I Had Half Their Energy

First of all...Happy Halloween! I thought this photo fit the mood of the day.

These are my son's hands interacting with an exhibit at the American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge, TN. Not a photo from Knoxville...but close enough.

How many times have I uttered the words...I Wish I Had Half Their Energy...when referring to my kids' endless supply of zest for life! I thought these words made a nice caption!

I don't know what these are called but have seen them for ages and always liked them. I just never thought of them being photographed. I like it.

Tanya said...

Those are cool aren't they?! And the caption is totally fitting! Happy Halloween :)

Very dramatic shot. Nice one.

Hi Hope, the photos of your children are always wonderful and they are so adorable. I'm back on line now and wanted to pop over and thank you for stopping by when I was off line. I will pick up the award with great pleasure. It might be a while before I put it on my blog but I promise to do so once I have caught up.

Tash said...

that's a fantastic photo - appropriately related to kid's energy

Hilda said...

I completely agree with you!!! Fantastic photo too!

Hope, thank you for your continued visits while I've been busy with my sister and nieces! I really appreciate it. I have just arrived from bringing them to the airport so I'll have time to be a virtual tourist again — maybe it'll arrest the depression I can feel beginning to kick in.

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..."
