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.

One Pic, Many Reflections

This was taken in Scottsbluff, Nebraska where we were visiting. I like its complexity!

To see many more reflections, visit Weekend Reflections.

Fun shot Dimple! I don't even know what's reflected and what isn't!

Nothing like riding in cars with reflections! Rear view mirrors hold so many options and strange happenings but, in this case, is but a small part of the scene! Fun!

Woody said...

Not Depth of Field, Depth of Reflection! Really cool

Lorac said...

Nicely done! It is "full".

Serline said...

Indeed! So much crammed into so little, very interesting.

Serendipity said...

Wow, so many reflections in one shot!

Paulie said...

Certainly has one looking more closely!

T. Becque said...

That is a lot of reflections - neat!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

That's one picture that takes more than one look!

Clytie said...

I agree with Sallie - I had to take a second look as well! Cool shot!!!
