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.

Stunning scenery, great photo! I think I would spend a day or two or three or four.....just looking at that wonderful view.

Tricia said...

Oh very pretty place! Where is that? I love that sky & reflection on the water!!!

Dimple said...

Hi Tricia, That is an inlet to a lake near my home. "Near" being about 6 miles away. A road I can choose to take when traveling to or from town crosses the inlet, and there is a wide spot where I sometimes pull over to take pictures. I haven't exhausted the view yet!

I've just had a nice catch-up on your last few posts. That bench - I think I'd be head over heels if I sat there - but good use of it as a signpost!
Your moon photo and the cedar-lined path were beautiful, but today's is just completely peaceful.
