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 Entryway

These beautiful light fixtures/chandeliers are found behind the Historic Tennessee Theatre box office in the outdoor area prior to entering the theatre. I'm still dreaming of taking a tour of the inside. Someday ... I hope!

hey, we're on the same wavelength today! I like how you caught the light and shadow here - really makes those textures stand out.

Ken Mac said...

geesh. Incredible detail. How'd you do it? Great color too.

Hope said...

Ken Mac...I love my little Nikon point & shoot cameras! They do allright, most times. I wonder what I could do with one of my husband's pro line cameras? He's offered to teach me...but I'm kinda stubborn and stay loyal to my Coolpix's. I would be glad to write a testimonial for Nikon! LOL!

Knoxville Girl...we are on the same wavelength! I visited your blog and was awestruck by the beauty of your photo of the Tennessee Theatre on a rainy night!

Hi Hope, those are gorgeous chandeliers, a beautiful ceiling too. I also love the angle of your photograph. Would love to go visit that theatre one day. Wishing you and your family A Very Happy Thanksgiving.

Beautifully ornate chandeliers. I could only imagine how inspiring the rest of the building is like.

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..."
