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.

Lovely scene. That looks like quite a powerful waterfall. Too bad we can't hear the sound...

Aah I love waterfalls! Glad I came over from Dina's blog, and have to say I didn't know the story of the tribe of Benjamin!

Very loud but also beautiful. I never was there but I can imagine it is very cold water. Nice photo.

Thanks for the visit.
