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.

Let's Go for a Ride!

I took this photo through the windshield of our car on a family vacation to Amish Country in Pennsylvania (June 2007). I'm glad I was able to capture the contrast in the different modes of transportation . . . the Amish buggy vs. the little sports car. Amish Country was breathtaking in its beauty, and I'm so thankful that our family was able to visit this most wonderful and unique place.

Neat shot, was Austin Powers behind the wheel of the car?

JM said...

Amazing contrast! Both Amish carriage and (Austin Powers - lol!) car are really cool. Great capture!

What a fun thing to see out of a car window.

They beat me to it. The amish buggy with a Shelby right behind it. One extreme to the next. When my son was in high school he worked in a shop that makes the reproductions of the Shelby. Right there in Halls. They ain't cheap.

Fantastic contrast. I don't think it would have been the same without the sports car in there.

Perfect contrast of plain vs. fancy. Love it.
