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.

Ruby Tuesday-Apples and More

Posted by Picasa
Red apples are really pretty hanging on the tree!


This unused outbuilding is red, too! The evening sun was doing a splendid job of lighting these every day things. I'm thankful I was walking around with my camera!

Sighs...a sure sign that fall is here. As much as I love fall, it just means winter's around the corner.

They're PRETTY!! Good of you you had your camera!!!

Carolyn Ford said...

I love both photos! The lighting on the red apples is great...the little building is just perfect to photograph.

Ralph said...

The apples look like a harvest of ruby. Northwest apples are the best, BTW. The building has the classic look of barn red, always the classic color for farm buildings. A nice pairing of reds, perfect for any Tuesday post...

Becca said...

Great photos! We have a bunch of fruit trees in our new house and I can't wait until it all ripens!

Brenda Leyland said...

Delicious looking apples - I'm so glad they're coming back into season again, the stored ones taste like cardboard.

Patti said...

Nice light you captured on the red apples. I'm glad that the outbuilding is "unused." That's a good thing. :-)

Happy Belated Ruby Tuesday ~ thanks for visiting me!
