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.

Snow at Last!

Even though the snowfall amount we received last week was small, the amount of fun our family had playing in the snow was enormous! Our area of East Tennessee rarely receives large amounts of snowfall we used to receive when I was a child. My children haven't truly been able to experience the joys of a snowfall of several inches....building snowforts, creating snowmen, and having snowball fights. But this snowfall was significant enough to allow us to play in the snow, go sledding, build snowmen and throw a few snowballs. Now, I'm going to wish for a huge snowfall! We now have snowboots to play in and we want to get our monies' worth!

They look like they are patiently waiting for you to finish taking their picture so they can throw those snowballs!

Laurie said...

So... did they lob one of those snowballs at Mom? :-)

Hope said...

Laurie....Yes, my son and husband hit the target! Don't worry, I got my revenge!

My daughter thought the snowballs hurt me and cried a little. She worries constantly about me. I reassured her that I was OK!

Happy kiddos!!

Snowballs are so much fun when you are little. I don't care for them. Did they make snow angels? It does appear to be enough to do that, but we were gone so I don't really know.
