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.

Sunsphere View I

This view from the Sunsphere shows the Tennessee River, buildings from the University of Tennessee, and Neyland Stadium....home to the UT Vols. You can see the Great Smoky Mountains in the far distance.

That's a nice view. The building to the right of the stadium looks very much like some of the buildings on the FSU campus here in Tallahassee.

That IS a view, and everything is so green!

I just love all the green and the trees. Something we don't have to much of...

I enjoyed your pictures.

I had forgotten how far you can see from up there. The river is pretty in the background.

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..."
