The Daily Focal Point

First Date

Filed under: Week Two — cabenelson @ 7:32 pm


For most people a favorite photograph really has nothing to do with composition, lighting, contrast, etc. It has everything to do with the personal feelings that are brought back each time they look at it. This is mine. This picture documents one of the first dates Kim and I went on. Egh… the word “date” might not be the most accurate description as Kim brought her little sister Emily. This photo was taken 2 weeks before September 11th 2001. It is strange to look at this photo over 7 years after it was taken and to think of how things have changed. I had no idea that when I was looking through the view finder on my dad’s 1970 35MM Minolta Camera that I was taking a picture of my wife. I love Kim and I am so grateful for her.

Sometimes I tend to forget that the best photographs are ones that bring back the most amount of feeling.



  1. aww, your description is very sweet. life is quite amazing.

  2. Wow that was ages ago. I don’t think I would have believed you if you told me that we’d one day be married. 🙂 When it was taken I wasn’t even sure if we should date yet!
