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.

February Theme Day: Paths and Passages

St. John's Cathedral has Knoxville's only outdoor labyrinth. Look closely on the bricks of the courtyard. I have spent a few lunch hours here; it is such a serene place. I haven't walked the labyrinth while praying or meditating . . . but sometimes feel the urge to perhaps do that.

Knoxville has to be one of the most surprising places on the dailies. Between you and knoxville girl are some real treats. This is a magnificent building and pathway.

Such beautiful paving design outside the church, making a beautiful passage.

I've heard of these meditation labyrinth walks, though I've never tried them myself.

Beautiful church and lovely brick work! Happy Theme Day!

Great post for theme day, but walking around these would definitely make me dizzy!

I think I would have missed the labrynth even if I walked over it.

Sorry about being so late on theme day -- we had the grandkids over this weekend.

It's a beautiful building and I think the labyrinth in cobblestones is fascinating.

It is a beautiful labyrinth. You have shown something else in Knoxville I did not know existed. I have been gone, I am now you you on trying to catch up. If I do not finish, I will be back.

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..."
