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.

Peeking Through My Blinds

The sun peeks through my blinds . . . insisting that I pay attention to the beauty of it's setting.

(I didn't register for the October Theme Day, but I had this photo that seemed to follow the theme of "Lines".)

I enjoyed your slide show, and the tittle is great! I love the chairs (stools) in the drug store

Petrea said...

Hope, this is a lovely use of the theme, registered or not. Warm colors, and a sun that won't quit!

Tanya said...

The colors warm me up! I need this on the cold day we are having here! Happy Theme Day :)

Knoxville Girl said...

Hey, you have lines, and a circle, excellent.
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog; go out & enjoy our lovely weather today!

Laurie said...

Beautiful, Hope! I love the way everything you photograph looks warm and inviting -- even miniblinds. You have a great gift, girl.

Thanks, Hope. I discovered you when you discovered me and left a comment. I am still doped up pretty good but wanted to thank you for your visits and hope you will come back when you have time.

I did enjoy your post about Long's Drug Store and it brought back a lot of memories for me and Patty as that was our young time. I was just coming home from Japan in 1956 when it opened but I did enjoy those kinds of drug stores most of my life until I went into the service.

I also liked the blinds post. The hot spot (sun I guess) makes it much more than it would be without it. Nice photography.

Now, a secret...

You can see what I have been working on and got some of it posted today. Just go to and have a look around. It is a long way from being done as I will use categories for it. I think there are 13 Baltimore Orioles there now and one separation page of sprinkling cans. I am not sure which bird will be next or maybe an animal but there will be at least 12 or more of that and than another separation page and so on.

Ken Mac,
Thanks for visiting my blog and the nice comments. You had mentioned you liked my banner photo. I wanted to tell you that the banner photo is my beloved baby girl. It's one of my all-time favorite snapshots. In fact, it was my very 1st post in my Knoxville Daily blog. I like your blog lots and am glad I've discovered you. I plan to return.

Tash said...

YES! That's it! The perfect LINES photo. I did not even think about it when I saw the preview on Picasso. PERFECT.

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

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..."
