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.

Photos are very very nice. The colour is so intense. We went to a pumpkin fair too here in malta last Sunday. I shall post some photos as soon as I have some time. Cute looking kids.

Hi Ken Mac or Ken of Mac...I guess I should say now.

Yes, this is my daughter...the same girl! Some of the previous photos were from months or even years ago. Sorry for the confusion. :)

Pumpkin pie out of scratch. What a concept and I bet even more of a treat. Love the hay rolls and corn stocks.
