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.

Eggs to Dye For!

The kids having some fun dyeing Easter Eggs. The colors turn out sooo much brighter if vinegar is used instead of water in the dye kit. But, as the kids soon found out, it's some STINKY fun!

Photo taken March 2008.

I remember dyeing eggs with my much fun and so much mess!

marley said...

I completely forgot that we used to dye eggs using vinegar when we were kids! Smelly but pretty :)

Hilda said...

LOL! I was wondering why they were holding their noses! Do the eggs taste of vinegar too? I sure hope not!

Happy Easter to you and your family, Hope!

I saw that same nose plugging this week!

Laurie said...

We were out of white vinegar and so we used lemon juice! No stinky dye .. but less vibrant colors, too.

This is a classic Easter shot!

I remember doing that when I was a kid, and the smell, funny post.
