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.

Historic Tennessee Theatre Box Office

They just don't make theatre box offices like they used to! This one is especially beautiful!

Amazing ticket box! I don't think I've ever seen anyone like that.

Leedra said...

It so beautiful with the restortation it looks brand new.

Tanya said...

It's gorgeous! It kind of reminds me of those ones at carnivals with a gypsy fortune teller inside :)

Again, excellent detail. Too bad they don't actually sell tickets out of the booth anymore. Wouldn't that be fun, though, if they had someone in 1920s fashions?

It's incredibly ornate. You just couldn't ignore this.

incredibly well preserved. This is a working theater? What did you see? I want to see Four Christmases this weekend.

Tash said...

Yes, you are right - no more pretty boxes like that! I like the green pig. Bet your kids liked the pig too.

This is indeed beautiful. Good that it has been preserved.

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..."
