The Rule of 6’s

Filed under: Uncategorized — cabenelson @ 11:34 pm

Normally I hate tags. Seriously. I have a rule. I simply don’t do them. Nice rule huh? Well rules are made to be broken I guess because I was tagged by my good friend Abby at Belina Blue Eyes. This tag is such a great idea I just had to do it.

Here are the rules:

1. Go to your documents/pictures.

2. Go to your 6th file.

3. Go to your 6th picture.

4. Blog about it.

5. Tag 6 people to do the same.

So here is my sixth picture in my sixth file folder.


I took this on March 13th, 2007 in downtown San Jose. It was a night shot and was taken at 11:30 PM. I was all alone. Being by myself at near midnight in a major metropolitan downtown isn’t a normal occurrence for me. That night I left the house in an argument with my wife and needed some time alone. I grabbed the camera and headed out of the door. Everyone has rough patches throughout their marriages, this was ours.

As hard as those times were, when I look at this picture I have a feeling of accomplishment. I love my wife so much and to overcome hard times just makes your realize how much you enjoy the good times. We’ve been through what I feel like is a lot and I’m proud that we’ve been strengthened because of it. I don’t want this post to be a “Debbie Downer” but it’s life right?

Oh! And that blur in-between the two palm trees is actually an airplane. For those who know San Jose, the airport is just north of the skyscrapers. When planes come in for a landing I have a split second of terror thinking, “OH SNAP! THAT PLANE IS GOING TO HIT THE BUILDINGS!”

Now, to do something I’ve never done before.

I shall tag…

1. Carlos
2. Mary Elizabeth
3. RCH
4. Dr. Cason
5. Gail
6. Lisa

  2. Carlos- Just go to your folder where you keep your pictures. Click on the 6th folder and identify the 6th picture in that folder and blog about it. It can be something totally random. Just in your 6th folder and the 6th picture.

  3. I would like to submit one but the pic is so awful that it is shivers me to make it public. Maybe one from my home computer will make the grade.

  8. Ok, I did it. But I’m not planning on tagging anyone. I’d have to just tag you right back. Thanks though…

  9. Ok, I played. I don’t have a lot of time right now, so couldn’t tag others, but it was fun. Thanks for giving me an opportunity to post something I really enjoyed.
