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.

Sledding in the Backyard

We have a tiny hill in the corner of our backyard which husband always hates when it comes time for mowing. But last week when we received our snowfall....that hill redeemed itself by providing our family with the perfect place for sledding! We had laugh-out loud fun and even let out a few Wheee's along the way! We took turns sledding with eachother and then sometimes took a solo trip down the hill. Our kids really needed to experience what it feels like to go sledding, and so I'm thankful for that little hill in the corner of our backyard. I think husband looks at it a little differently now, too. At least maybe until spring & summer arrive and mowing season starts.

The post yesterday and today are wonderful. Sleds used to go unsold around here and did for many years and now the stores didn't have any because of the disinterest in them in the past. So lots of kids were sliding on everything from trash can lids to those round plastic things they can't control. LOL

Nice shots.
