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.

Gay Street Bridge & Knoxville Waterfront

A view of the Gay Street bridge and Knoxville along the waterfront of the Tennessee River. This photo was taken from the south-Knoxville side of the river.

On the left, just peeking above the bridge, you can see the Sunsphere. The Sunsphere is located in the World's Fair Park but is such a presence on the Knoxville skyline that you can see it from all sorts of views around town.

The long horizontal glass building is the City-County Building which houses city & county government offices, courts, and the Knox County jail.

The Andrew Johnson Building is on the right. It's the old-style red-brick building located in front of the glass office buildings. The Andrew Johnson Building at one time was an upscale hotel, but it now houses offices for the Knox County School System.

Good morning Hope! I love those old lamp posts along the bridge and what a great building for school offices!

Beautiful skyline here. I haven't been to Knoxville in a long long time. It's changed a lot!

The bridge is so cool! It looks upside down! Great shot! The water surface looks beautiful.
