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.

This clock is located on Gay Street in downtown Knoxville . . . counting down the hours until 2009!

I think I like that patio to the right. Have a safe and Happy New Year!

It's a nice old clock too!

I hope you don't mind me taking the easy route by copying and pasting this comment, it is by far the easiest method of getting my message to so many CDP photobloggers.
I am not sure that I can sustain South Shields Daily Photo much longer, it is so difficult to keep finding new material on a daily basis,
and after more than two years inspiration and motivation are becoming harder to find, so I may become less daily from time to time.
I hope you can find new hope and inspiration, and that a new start in 2009 brings everything that you desire.
The CDP photoblogging community has grown massively over the past year and I'd like to thank those who have visited South Shields Daily Photo, especially those who have been kind enough to leave a comment or two.
Best wishes for 2008

I have yet to see a clock like this in any of Manila's streets. All I've seen are no-nonsense digitals! Useful, but not very pretty.

Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family, Hope! Wishing you all a peaceful and prosperous 2009.

Happy New Year!

I love these old clocks and Gay Street is beautiful!

Happy New Year Hope!

I love this old looking clock. I don't know if it was new when they redid Gay Street, or is there some history to it. It just gives me a smile when I see it.

Hope, Happy New Year! While on my drive yesterday, I shot a photo of a clock just like this one in the small town of Agua Dulce north of LA.

Great photo. Looks like there is some history to discover there.

Very nice clock!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you, Hope, and your family!

you know, the original one was hijacked by Kimballs Jewlers when they moved out to Bearden Hill because the city couldn't prove ownership - and it was known as the Hope Clock.
Happy New Year, Hope!

Salem has a handful of street clocks in the downtown area. Much more attractive than the digital sort. Happy New Year.

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..."
