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.

Singing in the Sunshine

Daughter had fun playing with this umbrella located on the Streets of American at Disney's Hollywood Studios park. There's a button on the sidewalk that activates a shower of water from the umbrella if you step on it just so. Sometimes unsuspecting folks will receive a cool and refreshing surprise ~ nice on a hot day!

Photo taken October 2007.

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).

What a little doll! I can't wait to show my daughter Singing in the Rain. It's still one of my favorite movies. She might be just old enough at 3 and a half to really enjoy it.

Wonderful, happy shot.

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..."
