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.

Tennessee Aquarium ~ Chattanooga, TN

The Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, TN is a wonderful place to visit....it's impressive inside and out! Lots of educational fun, too!

That's my son (he was 5 then) with a Clifford the Big Red Dog stuffed toy on his head.

Its huge. I went to the Dallas aquarium for the first time last year. It was a lot more than I thought, and I will go back.

It looks nice. Does it have a rainforest under all that glass at the top? I've been to the Baltimore Aquarium and it has a similar glass top which houses a rainforest.

Funky design for the building. I like bold styling like this.

Lois,

This aquarium has River Journey and Ocean Journey exhibits and aquariums. I don't recall a Rainforest exhibit under the glass, though.

It may be a butterfly exhibit under the glass. I was there two summers ago and I loved it. i took pictures of the girls with butterflies all around, even sometimes resting on the girls. Lots to see at the Chatt. Aquarium.
