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.

Reflections in water always excite me. Here, in your lovely photos, we have trees reflected in water, but I've seen in some places buildings reflected in water, and I liked that too.

Nicely done. Will you return in November?

Dimple said...

katney-That's an interesting thought, I might. It could be partly frozen by then, especially at the rate we're going.

Wonderful reflections! This is a great place to capture reflections. The top one is simply amazing!

Beautiful. Where were they taken? Is photography a hobby for you or are you more seriously involved? I like taking photos, but I am no photographer so when I see something like this I truly enjoy it.
