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.

Pumpkin Pie, Anyone?

The kids were so proud of the pumpkins they chose in the pumpkin patch! I guess we'll make some pumpkin pie and maybe toast some pumpkin seeds now!

The youngest kid look so concentrated on the big thing he has on his lap! I bet he will not let you make a pie out of his new toy :-)

Tanya said...

A cute group of kiddos! Love the colors in this, so bright!

I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin pie but LOVE pecan. I make both for Thanksgiving :)

We roast the seeds too, tradition!

Such cute kids! It looks like a lot of fun, I think you'll be set for toasted seeds for a while. Thanks,,

We had our daughters (1 and 4) paint a pumpkin.. it's all glittery now. Wonder if I can get all that glitter away from the seeds when we decide to crack it open?

Great shot.
Stop by my Kyle, Texas Daily Photo for an award.
