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.

It's A Great Big World Out There!

Even at the young age of 2 years, daughter was aware of the beauty of this amazing world as seen through her small airplane window. This photo was taken on our kids' first flight and our first trip to Walt Disney World with our children in December of 2005.

Our home during December 12-24, 2008, will be at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida (near Orlando). During this time, I will post some of my favorite photos from previous vacations to Walt Disney World (our family's favorite vacation destination).

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

Everybody has seen the photos looking out the airplane windows, but this one is great. You look at the photo, and you begin to feel you are seeing the clouds move. Add to that the profile of your daughter that is so good! This photo will bring back memories her whole life. It will make her think she actually remembers being there.

now that's a cool sky watch - looking down on the sky instead of looking up. I wish you and your family tons of fun on your holiday trip!

Lois said...

What a great picture! Have fun at Disney--it's my favorite too. My daughter and her family will be there at the same time as you. I can't go this time so will have to settle for pictures.

It is the inclusion of the child's wonder that has the magic touch here.

JT said...

Wonderful profile angle, window and ground. She has that look of wonder! Enjoy your trip, keep us posted and be safe.

I'm trying to imagine what your daughter is thinking about while she's looking out that window. Something magical I'm sure. Have a great vacation Hope.
