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.

Tree Frog



This little guy was on the outside of our backdoor window a while back. My husband spotted him, and I grabbed the camera! It's not often you get to see the underside of these cool creatures.

It's not a sign, is it?

Great capture! I do not see the small tree frog often, usually I see the big toads.

When we lived in our other house one of these little guys lived in a potted container with a little fur tree and almost every night we would see him on our glass front door.
Don't you just love those feet!
Nice shot!

I wonder what he thought he would find on your window. :) Very cool!

That's quite a frog, looks like he's got some magnet on his feet to stay that long.

That's a great photo there. Don't get many opportunities like that.

The frog could have been looking for something to eat. I don't have much photos of frog I am a coward when it's comes to them.

Another unexpected sight!! So was the bench?
I think he would have made me jump first and reach for my camera immediately after that!!

PERBS said...

Neat catch! Of course, I would be glad that it was on the outside and me on the inside. . .

That's a great sight :)
You asked if the flowers in my sunday photo were asters...I'm a big flower ignoramus, but looking at it I'd say yes...
