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 IV

A view to the north of Knoxville. In this photo you can see portions of our World's Fair park in the foreground and the old L & N train station to the right. The ridgeline in the distance is called Sharp's Ridge. The gap in the ridgeline is of course called Sharp's Gap. Interstate 275 runs north of Knoxville through Sharp's Gap and then becomes I-75 North. You can also see I-40 in this photo which runs east-west through Knoxville.

Drove that route many times but never saw it from this view.

Hope, did you take this from atop the water tower? Vertigo!

Hey, I was just there two weeks ago. Great picture.

I took these from the Sunsphere at the World's Fair Park in Knoxville. The Sunsphere was built as the icon of the World's Fair in 1982. There are offices inside and an observation floor from which you can look out over Knoxville from all directions.

Wow that's some traffic network. In Salem we have I-5. You going north or south?

What an awesome view! I love how this part of the city doesn't have skyscrapers and how the built-up spaces are interspersed with a lot of trees. Everything looks so neat too.

This view is looking North.

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..."
