Credit Where It Is Due

Credit Where It is Due

I like to make photographs, and I enjoy being praised for what I have done. But God teaches a different attitude, one of thankfulness and humility. He pointed that out to me recently. I DO NOT MAKE THESE PHOTOGRAPHS ALONE. I didn't create the light, or the technology which makes photography possible. I didn't buy my camera, it was a gift from my husband. I didn't give myself the ability to see through the camera in order to make an image which others find pleasing. It is right to use what I have been given to the best of my ability, but it is wrong to take credit for what I have not done. God made the light, the elements which are used to manufacture the camera, and the world from which these images come. He has given me gifts: people to teach me, eyes to see with, and a brain to process information. I am thankful for these gifts. He deserves all the praise, not I.

Camera Critters


This fawn is one of three which have been hanging around lately--I think the apples falling from our trees have something to do with it!
It's not often that the light and everything work when I try to get a shot like this!

That is a really nice shot. We have plenty of deer around here, but I never get this close.

Great capture! The light is wonderful, and the fawn is being such a good subject.

And he looks like he's posing or at least looking back before he heads into the woods. :)
They are indeed the sweetest little animals. And yes, they got quite a few of our apples as well. I think they like them better than the acorns.
Nice shot!

Thanks for you comments! When at Disney I always felt like a kid, and those characters were even "real" to me when we would photograph and pose with them.

Your deer are lovely! Many deer today!

I captured a photo of a young deer while on vacation. It is such a treat to capture unsuspecting wildlife. Very nice shot!

These are very wary, so you have been grabbed your chance and used it well.
