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.

Rainbow Ice Cream

Daughter chose the prettiest ice cream at Kay's Ice Cream shop! Usually she wants Mint Chocolate Chip...but when she saw all the pretty colors, she would have nothing but the Rainbow Swirl.

Those blue eyes are stunning. And the ice cream is neat too. It reminds me of sherbert.

Jim said...

It looks good, I wonder what the flavor was like?

Tanya said...

She's adorable HOpe! My boys always pick Superman ice cream because of all the colors, it actually looks alot like that one! Maybe it has more red and blue in it though, really a colorful mess!

Laurie said...

She matches the ice cream!

This is outstanding, Hope. WHat a great shot -- as always.

My daughter's favorite ice cream is strawberry -- or "wah-berry" as she calls it.

Beautiful, goes with her dress! I remember getting rainbow ice cream (not sherbet) way back when I was a little kid.

fantastic! color, angle, shot, expression, skin tone. Love it! This is a point and shoot?

Hope said...

Ken Mac....yes, a point & shoot!
I took this photo with my Nikon Coolpix 5900. I liked the way the ice cream colors matched my daughter's dress. I was also pleased with the results from this little camera!

Pretty ice cream for a beautiful little girl.

I can see how that would be irristable for a kid! I know my daughter always wants cotton candy ice cream - I think just because it's so blue!

gogouci said...

It looks like she's offering me some. Who could resist with those kind eyes.

Louis la Vache said...

And who is to blame her!? ;-)

Tash said...

Wow - those beautiful eyes - I never saw the ice cream. Wonderful portrait Hope.
