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.

Oh too funny, you and Knoxville Girl are on the same wave length today!
I like the blurred effect you've done!
Good morning :)

Jim said...

Did you see KG there? I like the motion.

Knoxville Girl said...

holy guacamole! we are on the psychic network again, sister! this is hilarious - now I have to guess what we are going to do in tandem for an encore! but my shot is from last year - the more things change, the more they stay the same?

Hope said...

Knoxville Girl! I guess great minds think alike! My photo is from last Friday evening. Too Funny and such a Coincidence!

Hope said...

OMG! Knoxville Girl, we posted comments to each other on our blogs at exactly the same time .... at 8:22 a.m.!! Now I'm getting kinda scared! Either that, or we've now entered the Twilight Zone!

Knoxville Girl said...

woah! if I get an urge to post pictures of Disney World, I'll know why! have a fun and safe trip and a happy Christmas!

Ken Mac said...
