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.

Pumpkin Patch Pose

Our church has a pumpkin patch . . . hence the church clothes son wore while exploring amongst all the pumpkins. Son points at his favorite pumpkin while sitting on one that obviously wasn't.

So did he get it and carve it up?

Hope said...

Hi Jim....He had already brought a pumpkin home from a recent after-school care trip to a corn maze & pumpkin patch....and decided that he would rather decorate with that pumpkin. It was still fun for him to look through these pumpkins, though, and pick out his favorite!

I think I should go into the Pumpkin Patch business! It seems quite lucrative-ha Cute photo. Love the color!

Did he get to bring it home? You'll have to show us how it looks after he carves it...

I love your family photos, especially the one where your son makes this protective and instinctive gesture towards his little sister.

I'll never forget the first time I saw a field of pumpkins (Ohio). After spending so many years in Alaska, it was a bit surreal.

I'm so glad you have the opportunity to share this experience with your children. This photo is beauitful.
