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.

I'm always looking for shapes in clouds and as I look at the silhouetted trees I'm imagining a huge crocodile walking behind them. :)
Lovely soft shot!

I'd love to have that few from my porch! BTW: I have the same "leaf man!" He's cute, especially hanging in my backyard.

Beautiful colors. We have had some lovely days as well. Relish in those days of sun and color.

The soft pastel sky is comforting and so easy on the eyes. The lone cloud appears as a feather in the heavens. The Gem State forest offers the nice backdrop against the sky. All beautiful!
