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.

Cowboy Found on City Sidewalk

This pigeon's treading on dangerous ground!

Fantastic photo, where is this, in Knoxville? We just got back from there last weekend- my hubby is a K-town native and all his family still lives there. That's why I started following your blog. Where is this handsome cowboy located? We will look for him next month when we go to visit again.

Hi Sandy,

Thanks for the kind words and following my blog. This sculpture can be found on Gay Street. We were walking north on the right sidewalk towards the Mast General Store.

I haven't been able to post daily, lately. So my blog has been neglected somewhat. :(

Sandy said...

Thanks for the info. I was actually talking with my sister-in-law last weekend about going to the Mast General Store on my next visit. I've never been to that part of Knoxville before, we talked about going to Market Square since I've been dying to go down there. My in-laws live off Tazewell Pike, so we don't go downtown often. But I will be sure to go and find the cowboy!!
