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.

Sunset through Grass


The sky lately has been mostly gray, so I'm posting a picture taken at the end of September from our driveway.  For more sky shots, visit Skywatch Friday and Looking at the Sky on Friday. To see more scenics, visit Scenic Sunday.

The sky is glorious, as we see the sun trying to reappear. The perspective of the slight grasses compared to the mighty sky is awesome!

Gorgeous color through the grass. We've had nothing but gray here lately, too-- I also posted a September pic in memory of warmer colors! I love that this is at the end of your driveway-- it looks like such a wilderness from the photo!
