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.

Eyes in the Back of the Building

Open Your Eyes. Open Your Mind. The Knoxville Museum of Art has some wonderfully thought-provoking words and visuals to inspire all of us.

Greetings from Alaska!
I bet the view from that deck, between the two eyes, is amazing. Beautiful shot! I love the landscaping. It's nice to see green this time of year. Is this a recent photo?

like the splash of red from the boys top. lifts the image and mirrors the red in the trees too.
good shot.

That's perfect, Hope. I love it and I'm glad you decided to keep blogging. I've taken a looser approach to it, I post every day but I post when it's convenient for me and although I don't visit others to comment as much as I used to I always return the visit. It's the best I can do right now, I'm so busy with my home renovations and working on starting a home based business.

Hmmm...these could look spooky at night! Neat idea though.

It's as if the eyes are watching the children play.
