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.

A bit slower than watching paint dry...

There is a beauty in the ordinary things that you have captured in the photos and made me stop and look!

Nuts in May

I always feel sad seeing a building like that. As if nobody loves it anymore and is just putting up with it. Makes for great photos though

Sylvia K said...

I agree with Maggie May, there is beauty in ordinary things, as there is beauty almost everywhere if you take the time to see it. Great shot for P day!

Enjoy!

Nice textures that make interesting pictures but so sad that the wood isn't preserved.

Nothing like a good bit of decay to make a nice photo! Seriously, I love taking pics of things that are falling apart - they're very photogenic!

Two great captures for sure... I resently show a window frame on one of my blogs and was asked if I had taken any close ups... I hadn't.. but after seeing these results here will be taking more notice next time...

Nice to see your name in my comments section, thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to comment.

Keep well

Strang, I know, but I like the look of peeling paint. Maybe it's because it means the object has been around for a while and has some history.

I posted peeling paint on PHOTOHUNT when I participated. I got tired of playing tag and visiting 100 sites just to get some one to comment on mine.

I agree with Stine in Ontario - I like the look of peeling paint, just not on my house!

Terry said...

these sad scenes remind me too much of the air force base in my beloved manitoba, where we used to live...what houses are left are in such dire array...peeling paint on the window frames and on the doors.
i will have to make a post of the destruction we saw this summer in rivers, manitoba..
you would have done such a great job if you had been with us and taken the pictures dimple!
love terry
