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 Leaves Up Close
March came in like a lamb where I live, and you know what that means, don't you? Yup! We are still feeling the swish of the lion's tail! It has even been snowing today--I'm glad it won't last long.
This photo is obviously from my archive. I retired in February and haven't been out much with my camera since. Go figure! So for Shadow Shot Sunday, Macro Monday, and Ruby Tuesday I hope you enjoy these autumn leaves. They are pretty, I think! Click on the links to see other great photos from all over!
