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.

Love is . . . .

Happy Valentine's Day to all! Wishes for lots of love, kisses, and chocolate hearts for everyone!

I didn't receive this rose today but one day last August. I copied & pasted this little bit of my family life from my other blog. A story of a single rose . . . .

(Friday, August 8, 2008) I was so very tired this evening. Husband took the kids to McDonald's to eat and play on the indoor playground so I could have some quiet time alone at home. I was asleep when they arrived back home. I heard "Mama" very quietly in my ear . . . . and so, woke up. The kids presented me with a single red rose with baby's breath in a vase. Husband stood behind them all quiet and smiling. They said they wanted to get me a rose to help me feel better.

I was thrilled and gave them all kisses. Of course, I received kisses in return. Such a very nice way to wake up!

My Rose
