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.

Photographer's Assistant

This is my husband at our son's flag football practice in August 2005. Our daughter was a very able and helpful photographer's assistant at age 21 months!

Our kids have been exposed to cameras from their very first moments after birth until now and are very willing to pose for us!

One day this may change. I hope not.

The day they roll their eyes at me and say, "Oh, Mom, do you have to take a picture?" ....that day will break my heart.

Hopefully, I'll have no worries as far as that's concerned! :)

She's perfect. I think she will grow up too break many hearts.

Tash said...

That is so darling. She was, is and will always be a cutie.

Rambling Round said...

It won't be long, and she'll be the one behind the camera taking pictures.

Leedra said...

I have niece and nephews that do that, and hide from getting their photos taken. I tell them when they are grown they will wonder why there are no photos of them.

What a great helper. I agree with Rambling Round. I've molded my three into mini shutterbugs too.

She will probably be saying that as soon has she hits teenager.
