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.

Hiking Buddies

Son and daughter bonding in their enjoyment of hiking at Ijams Nature Center in South Knoxville.

My kids all seem to get along better when we are out doing something active rather than sitting at home! Nice photo Hope :)

Ken Mac said...

hey Hope, thanks for your fantastic comments on my site. So nice of you. My girlfriend Leacy and I think your site is great as well...we both, and I'm not fibbing, agree that not only do you take great shots -- I think you are a natural -- but we love your cute kids. Leacy says "ssooooooo cute!"

Laurie said...

I see Ken and Leacy share my love of your site, Hope! This is another example of how you are just a natural photographer. I love the composition, the sweetness of those kids on a path -- and the metaphor of life's progression right there before us. Great job!

Hope said...

Thanks Ken Mac, Leacy, and Laurie, and Tanya for your wonderful comments and encouragement. Your words mean so much to me.

Donna said...

Hope of Knoxville Daily Photo. Hope can squeeze images out of her Nikon Coolpix that will astonish you. The photographs of her kids capture the essence of childhood and a mother's love with the same poignancy and joy of the paintings of Mary Cassatt..."
