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.

How did you get that red "diamond" to work so beautifully with the reflection on the water?

An artsy shot.

Beautiful sun reflection!

Pretty reflection on the water!

Dimple said...

Leora-The red "diamond" is part of a fishing lure. It's also the part of the photo that worked, and I didn't know. I was looking at the sun reflection when I took the picture; I didn't notice the pole and lure until later. So God helped me take the picture, because He knew it wouldn't have been nearly as interesting without the lure!
