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.

Shadowy Shelves


These urns were on display at a local craft store.
I think they are beautiful this way!
Visit Hey Harriet for more shadow filled pictures.

Very natural and as soft looking--soft as a baby's skin. Nice job!

You've captured well the shape and colour delicacy of these urns. Lovely items!

The light plays off each urn very nicely. In fact, the shadows almost add a depth to each piece of pottery. The lighting is a fine selling point, the shadows enhance the very form - the lighting alone makes each piece say 'Buy me!!!!!!"

Hi Dimple, Remember me? If you don't I wouldn't blame you (lol). Your photos are beautiful and I just want to say that I loved your post on finding Jesus in the consecration of the High Priest on your Bible Blog. Have you had a look into how Melchizedek fits into all this yet?

Simplicity goodness - Lovely framing work!
