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.

Red Bricks & Window Reflection


This was taken at my daughter's university in 2005, a couple of months before she graduated. We were waiting for her to come out of this building, and I was taking pictures to pass the time. I was glad I looked up, because this caught my eye!

To see more reflections, visit James at Newtown Area Photo; and to see more red things go visit maryt at Work of the Poet for Ruby Tuesday.

Lovely detailing on this building. Finally, an architect who let the details be just enough to break up the red in the brick without overpowering the design. Lovely capture, a simple elegance! Merry Christmas!
