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.

Our Pretty Princesses

Daughter went to an all-girl birthday party on Saturday. The girls played outside, jumped on the trampoline, had fingernails and toenails painted, played with make-up, and received princess hairstyles. Then they dressed up as princesses and danced to Hannah Montana music. It was as much fun for the moms as for the girls!

My little girl wears her princess dress at least twice a week! She would have loved this party -- except for the manicure/pedicure. Nail polish freaks her out.

Daryl said...

Our granddaughter, Audrey and her mom who are living with us now, is 8 and loves Hanna Montana and likes to play like she is a princess or a store clerk but she wants to always be the boss.

This is a really beautiful photograph with the colors and all. I have two teenage queens on the back of a car to show either tomorrow or the next day. They were in the Fireman's parade.

Looks great fun - just hope they don't take it TOO seriously - I recently watched a US edition of "Wife Swap" and found some people make it a huge obsession.

Hope said...

No worries Hyde....it's just for fun....no obsessions! LOL!

So pretty!! Sounds like a really fun day, celebrating some of the reasons why it's great to be a girl!!
