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.

Purple Chair

Daughter's Advice..."If you're ever lucky enough to discover a Purple Chair, you must sit it in for a while. It'll make you smile...I promise."

We discovered this Purple Chair on a visit to the University of Tennessee Gardens when daughter was 22 months old.

'The colour purple' is a great message on days to come! Cute little girl seems really happy! :-)

It's true! I had a purple chair in our garden in GA. I bought an old rickety wooden chair and painted it bright purple. It got weathered and the paint was peeling but I loved it. I left it there though since it was about to fall apart if moved.
Cute photo :)

I guess Coach Fulmer never sat in the chair.

Kind of like Kenny Chesney's "Old blue chair" (for those country music fans)
