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.

Sportsmanship and Teamwork

Son plays soccer with enthusiasm and a determination to win! The soccer organization he plays in does not keep score...but the kids (and parents) still get very excited when a goal is made. This photo captures the intensity of son's concentration once he steps onto the playing field.

Priceless photo of total concentration!! Hope he had a great game.

I always thinks it's kind of funny when kids take antyhing so seriously!

PJ said...

So nice to know there's such a league...for the parents. We had our son in a church league, it made no difference, the parents were nuts but without the beer in the city league. That's a great portrait, Hope. The man inside the boy.

Laurie said...

Look at the intensity and focus! Great shot, Hope.

I with my son's league didn't count goals. He's on the soccer equivalent of the Bad News Bears. He's always anxious to practice and play though.
