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.

A fun shot! Did you have a good weekend? :)

Jim said...

Neat pic. Were you in the tunnel or was it open at the other end.

This is really a neat shot. Gosh. I wish you had turned this upside down. I can't get my head twisted around to really see this. I bet it would be wild the other way around.

Tanya...we did have a great weekend! We did a little bit of hiking at Ijams Nature Center here in Knoxville. Of course, I took some photos...which I will post in the next few weeks.

Jim...I was at the other end of the tunnel. I have been known to crawl through these things, though! LOL!

Abraham...Now that's a great idea to flip the photo the other way around. That would have been hilarious! Love your sense of humor! LOL!

Hope said...

Hi Ken Mac....I follow my kids around with a camera....cuteness happens and I click! One of these days, I'm afraid, my kids may not be so accomodating....and may even roll their eyes at me. I so hope not!

Tash said...

Great shot! the angle and the colors & of course - the main subject make the photo.

Pictures of people upside down are always so weird.
