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.

Unexpected Words of Wisdom

Wise words found on a Knoxville billboard. I drove past this billboard, turned around in a church parking lot, stopped to read the sign again, and decided to snap this photo.

Happy SkyWatch Friday! To see more SkyWatch photos from around the world visit Skyley at www.skyley.blogspot.com.

Great sky, I think I am still trying the discover part of the message. When I find it watch out.

This is a great SWF post. Love the billboard. We should always be on the lookout for a new discovery. I have had a camera in my hand since childhood, but just in the last year discovered so much more about "me and photography".

this made me chuckle...watched the movie "when fools rush in" for the third time this week and there was a line in it about watching for signs...and the signs would basically tell you what to do...

good photograph...

thanks for sharing.

Oh yeah! Wise words indeed ...:)

Tell that to the teenager who says he don't know what to do.

LOL
