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.

What's for Supper?

How about Spaghetti? Always a good choice at our house!


Ben said...

I love it! Good shot!

B Squared said...

Making the ordinary look extraordinary. Nice work.

Boise Diva said...

Mmmm. A really good choice that we tap into probably every other week!

Also a family fave for us. Neat picture.

Mary Helen said...

Hope, I must be a little slow..LOL I can't find your photos! I'm not sure what I'm doing or where your photos are. Help!

Hope said...

Mary Helen,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with seeing my photos. Last week I had a bit of trouble with my photos taking forever to load. All I could see was the header of my blog and the About Me section. Try again. I'm seeing my photos OK now.

Hope in Knoxville

Spaghetti is a fave here too! These are such creative shots - great idea!!

Jim said...

Excellent pic, what a creative way to get a shot.

JT said...

Hi Hope! Your spaghetti shot woke me up! I love your photo--it almost jumps out at you.

As for "getting around all of Southern California," yes, it seems I do. I consider it a blessing most of the time. What really motivates me, however, is knowing my photos and stories are being shared with people from around the world. I like being an "ambassador" for my city, County and State. It's an honor.

"With gratitude and great pleasure I would like to pass the award to these photography bloggers:

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..."
