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.

Snowman Building 101

Son was excited to finally be able to build a snowman with the snow we received last week. Husband and I had to give him the basic instructions, and then he pitched in and helped with enthusiasm. Snow is just so much fun!

I grew up in GA, so we didn't get snow very often. Only a couple of times during my childhood. But this reminds me of my older brother one time, he was about the same age as your son. He got that ball of snow going and he lost it. It rolled all the way down our sloped yard right into the creek. But it sure was BIG by the time it got to the creek. That is my childhood memory of snow. I moved to Knoxville when I was 18, and we have some very big snows since I have been here, but not in several years.
