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.

Blue Christmas

This tree decorated with blue & white lights in downtown Knoxville makes me think of Elvis Presley's song "Blue Christmas."

It does me too! What's that tower thing next to it?

Hope said...

Tanya....That tower stands next to a sidewalk which leads over to Krutch Park. It has some lighting on it so I guess it's more for lighting the pathway than anything else.

We dont really have a tree for Terrell. I like the blue, and Tennessee and Elvis go together.

Karen said...

Beautiful and my favorite color. Blue.
Thanks for posting to my blog.. You are heading here and I'm leaving for Paris.. Too bad, it would have been nice to meet you.

Maybe next time.

JM said...

The tree is really nice in blue!

Connie said...

I am definitly heading downtown one night before Christmas. I didn't know what I was missing. I can feel my Christmas spirit gaining momentum.

My Christmas spirit is gaining momentum. I have definitely got to get downtown at night. I didn't realize what I was missing.

The person that came up with all that blue was probably thinking the same thing.

Oh, that's just spectacular. I like the blue lights - they seem very elegant. Good reference to Elvis' song (I will be humming it for the rest of the day.)
PS - on my son's flying lessons - thanks for the lovely comment & the reason kids can fly before driving is that the instructor can take over the controls at any time and usually in the beginning helps with take-offs and landings.

Another beautiful shot.

Thanks for reminding me it's time to torture my children with Christmas music...Elvis, Bing, The Chipmunks. What a beautiful tree. I don't think I've seen one cropped so it drapes over the ground. It makes it that much more elegant.

Blue is my new red and green for Christmas. This tree is stunning and I wish it was mine.
