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.

Fractured Reflection



I took this a long time ago, but I like it and it fits the theme. For more Weekend reflections visit James at Newtown Area Photo.

Great reflection! I'm partial to the California flag since it's my home state. :)
Actually I came very close to posting a reflection of four American flags. I 'm sure I'll post it sooner or later.

Thanks for being part of the meme!

Hi Dimple! I see that my comment didn't turn up. I wanted to say that I like your reflection and I enjoy this meme! Dimple is a great name. I also like the Lord of the Rings and was in New Zealand on the places where the movie was shot.

James, Thanks, California is my home state, also. I was there visiting family when I took this picture.
Carol & subtorp77, Thanks!
Wil, Hi to you! I bet visiting those places in NZ was great!

Very well done I think I must look at least three times to find where they joins.
