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.

November Sky


I took this about a month ago from our parking area. You may recognize the tree line from other posts.
To see more skies from all over, visit Skywatch Friday and Looking at the Sky on Friday.

The clouds above the treeline look animated, as I see an inset dark cloud almost 'chasing' a bigger gray blob in front of it. The imagination runs wild in these complex set of clouds!

Oh, I like it! I love to find pictures in the clouds, I see a golden retriever jumping in water! Nicely captured.

Thanks so much for playing along.

I have a sky posted now if you have time to stop back by: LATSOF - Good Day Sunshine!

Those ominous clouds are great and that tiny strip of blue on the horizon is a promise of better skies ahead. ~ http://calicocontemplations.info/index.php/2009/12/looking-at-the-sky-on-friday-16/

What dramatic cloudy skies above that lovely stand of pine trees! I've shared warm beach sunset views at Happily Retired Gal and Sacred Ruminations this week.
Hugs and blessings,
