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.

The beauty of the sky is accented so well by the slender grasses. The ground cover accentuates the wide sky. This sunset in pink and lavender is breathtaking!

Terry, It is not wheat, or a field. My husband thinks it is probably the seed heads of what we call quack grass. They were at the end of our parking area, where it drops down to the field. Our weather lately has been clouds, rain, and snow. This was taken last month.

Lovely photo. I love the silhouette against the sky. I appreciated the comments left on my blog. I really do believe that children are a special gift from God and feel privileged to have them.
