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.

Mint Green Building

I pass this small, square-box, mint-green building every day after leaving my office in downtown Knoxville. I am fascinated with this building ... it's color ... it's shape ... and the ivy growing along it's side. So, of course, I just had to have a photo.

I wonder if the first floor is slanted?

Hope said...

That's a very good question, Jim!

Stumbled upon your blog and found it quite interesting. I almost moved into that house last year! It's wonderful. And no, haha, no slanted floors! But there is an old ticket window inside and it has exposed brick, it's beautiful. If you get a chance you should take a look inside!

Hill, thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm glad you did to let us know about the interior of this building. As I said, I'm fascinated with the look of this little place! It sounds beautiful inside...and also that's very interesting about the ticket windown inside!

I also stopped by your blog and saw that you went to Disney On Ice a few days ago. We took our kids on Saturday and had the best time! Disney Rocks!

Yeah, has it got a sloped ground floor?! Interesting building!

Hope said...

Hi Marley & Jim....

The comment above by "Hill" answers our question about the sloped ground floor...her comment is very interesting and the interior of this building actually sounds very fascinating.

Greetings from Juneau (Alaska) Daily Photo!
I really like the ivy growing up the side. I wonder if you can BBQ on top? It looks like it would be a great place to entertain.

I'm glad you were able to go see Disney on ice. I bet it was spectacular.:)

Don't think I've seen ivy growing on buildings outside the UK before - doesn't appear to be the same species. Lovely coloured brick.

It is an eye-catching building. Looks like it's now condos for sale? We are having a boon of new downtown living spaces in renovated buildings.
