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.

I Have an Idea....Let's Eat at the Steak & Shake

I took the kids to eat at the Steak & Shake yesterday afternoon. They really liked it! Good food, crayons and puzzle menus, old-time diner decor (which our family is a fan of), and foldable-paper classic cars for the kids to play with and take home.

For myself....I'm always a fan of hamburgers, fries, and a milkshake! And a night off from cooking can be a good thing, too.

Photo taken with my iPhone.
