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 got a new camera for Christmas, it takes good pictures!
To see more yellows, visit Mellow Yellow Monday. For more reds, the place to go is Work of the Poet, And for more very close shots, try Macro Monday at Lisa's Chaos.

Josie Ray said...

"Holy cow! That's a bow!" were the words that slipped out of my mouth after I sat looking at this photo for a moment. :-) Just thought I'd share that with you! I thought it was some high-tech fiber optics or something...what a great shot!

Congrats on the new camera...how fun!

It's been a pleasure getting to know you somewhat through blogging this year. Blessings for a joyful and peaceful 2010!
