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.

I love walking along the train tracks and the kids have fun finding all the things that have fallen off the train!

Boise Diva said...

Wow, what fun for a kid...

Leedra said...

Great that you could find abandoned tracks. We used to walk on the real thing, but our parents didn't know it.

Hope, thanks for your help. I've started adding blogs I follow. I just couldn't see it last night, but then again I feel much better today.

JT said...

This is a happy picture.

Ever since I was little, I love trying to balance like they are on the rails! I usually can go quite a ways before slipping off them...

Are you going to frame that photo? What a treasure. It would make a great Father's Day gift for your hubby. Of course I know we've got a ways to go for that.

"With gratitude and great pleasure I would like to pass the award to these photography bloggers:

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..."
