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.

Leading the Way

The Knox County sheriff's department leads the way during a parade through our hometown. Photo taken Summer 2008.

Great capture! They seem to have stopped for the photo! :-)

Tanya said...

Nice photo Hope. I am kind of wishing it was summer again! Have a great weekend :)

Jim said...

They have some nice bikes.

Hilda said...

They do look good!

I'm just not crazy about armed forces of any kind — I keep wishing we had no need for them at all.

This is what my island looks like for two weeks in June. Nothing but bikes. It is a great sight.

I think you got a smile, or two, too.

Nice shot Hope. I haven't been to a parade for ages. I'm sure your kids enjoyed it.

Very cool photos of your sheriff department in the parade. I also have not been to a parade in a long time, way overdue :) They are a lot of fun.
