The Daily Focal Point

I’ve been here… but I haven’t really been here. Holy crap, can I tell you how hard it is to be away from home for close to 4 weeks… with a newborn… and working?!?

Uh… schedule? What schedule.

Things I’m looking forward to the most when I actually get home:

  • Our Tempurpedic Bed (My back feels like it’s twisted in half)
  • Creating a REAL schedule with the “little one”
  • Oddly enough, WORK

But guess what?
The DFP is resuming the PHOTO CHALLENGES!!! I’m sorry about the hiatus and I’m positive this week’s challenge will only be me participating because, well, I’ve lost all of my readers.

So Mom, if you’re reading this, I could really use your help. 🙂

Your Photo Challenge this week is submitting a picture(s) of your favorite place. And it could be anything! A favorite city you traveled to, a favorite spot you like to go to, a favorite anything!

OR you can do what I’m doing… my favorite place to have a heart attack!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I proudly present to you my favorite eating establishment…


Home of the Double Country Boy with Extra Cheese – Don’t let the word “double” fool you. This Man-Wich is four patties. TAKE THAT HEALTHY ARTERIES. Living to an old age is out, haven’t you heard?

This photo wasn’t actually taken by me but I’m going to say that it was. Look at how happy I am…

I’m so happy infact, that I am doing the “white man” moon walk with a single hand “raising the roof” It’s actually a difficult dance move. I picked it up while I was living on the streets in the ghetto…

My friend Tyler Bunnell (yest that’s his real middle name)

Love the stuffed bear

Bountiful UT is one of those places where you run into people you know no matter if you’re going to the grocery store or buying a gas at Costco. Bunnell and I actually ran into my good friend Jesse who we grew up with.

Ah… Priceless

Yup, still my favorite place to eat.

SEND ME A PICTURE OF YOUR FAVORITE PLACE BY EMAILING ME THE HTML FLICKR LINK TO YOUR PHOTO. If you DON’T have a Flickr account DON’T WORRY! Just email me your photo as usual. But if you do have a Flickr account, just follow these simple instructions.

* Upload your photo to Flickr
* Click on the “All Sizes Tab” right above the photo
* Select the “MEDIUM” sized (500×335)
* Then just email me the “Copy and Paste the HTML link into your webpage” link

Again, email me your favorite pic (via link or attach it) to cabenelson (at) gmail (dot) com. I would also ask that if you put a little paragraph together describing your pic or your favorite place!

It’s been so long since I’ve done these Photo Challenge’s that the reason I do them is to learn and to see what other people’s perspective’s are.

So… what’s your favorite place?



  1. I’m so stoked that the photo challenges are back on. I’m also so sad. I love Pace’s. When Nick and I were flying back to KC, he said, “We never got our rainbows from Pace’s.” A moment of silence please.

  3. Hey, Cabe, welcome back. I did miss you. I can submit photos that I have already taken (that’s why I can do this one because I have lots of photos of places I love.) A little short on time this quarter to take pictures, but I’ll try to keep up when I can. Really glad you are back.

  5. Dude, I was so moved by the single handed raising of the roof…really. It’s amazing what one can accomplish when they put their mind to it. hee hee.
    Seriously though, love the black and whites.
