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.

The Unwrapper

Our family celebrates several November birthdays. Our kids are always eager to help unwrap presents. Daughter was two years-old in this photo and already showing her mastery of the unwrap!


Tanya said...

She looks so cute! Unwrapping used to be one of my favorite things about Christmas and birthdays. Now everything is in gift bags. I still try to wrap as much as possible!
We are a big family of August birthdays.

I also try to wrap presents as much as possible in paper...much more fun to unwrap than the gift bags.

Tash said...

Such joy! It's so wonderful to see.

She looks crazed with anticipation. That poor ribbon doesn't stand a chance.
