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.

Perfect Sky, Perfect Reflection

Last Sunday was gorgeous. I was the passenger and was able to snap these as we crossed a bridge.
Perfectly calm, just a few clouds.
 
Perfect for Skywatch Friday, Looking at the Sky on Friday, and Weekend Reflections. I hope everyone has a great week!

How come your drive by reflections are better than my standing still ones - LOL!
What a glorious day it must have been.

Wonderful reflections! That sky is picture perfect, and you took its picture.

Happy sky looking and happy weekend.

Ralph said...

what a beautiful state Idaho is! To look at the lake you are almost mesmerized, as your eyes follow the horizon and you look up at the mountains that appear. The sky is the brightest blue, too. We are glad you weren't driving, these pictures are a treat!

Perfect is the key word! I love being a passenger but am so short, I rarely get a good photo without some part of the vehicle in it.

Enjoy the weekend........

oh dimple!..how nice to be the passenger and be able to take photos like this.
was it warm enough to keep the window open?
the water is as smooth as glass and the clouds are just a whisper reflecting on the vast blue mirror
these pictures would look good on a calender dimple!
great post!...love terry

Hi Dimple,
Thanks for visiting my Branches blog. I love these photos! I noticed the lovely reflection in the second one, so went back to see the first, and then noticed these are also for the reflections meme. All 3 are awesome, and I can't pick a favorite.
