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.

Bounce Break

This photo was taken on the 4th of July, 2005. It was HOT! In the upper 90's! Our community which is north of Knoxville had a parade and free food & drinks....hot dogs, chips, watermelon, snow cones, colas, and bottled water.

There were several inflatables for the kids (and adults) to play, jump, slide and bounce on. My son was 5 then and was in sheer heaven on this day. In this photo, he was inside one of the bounce houses and was taking a break from all the bouncing. His face was so flushed from the heat and exertion.

I can't wait for these days of Summer fun!

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..."
