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.

What a great shot of the bleeding heart. This was my Mothers favourite plant. I have several in my garden now

Beautiful, Dimple! Now that I look at your domestic bleeding heart, I really see the resemblance to the one here in Florida (it's almost like the colors are reversed). We used to grow bleeding heart in our Oregon garden, but I guess it's been so long I've forgotten.

Your picture is just beautiful!

O, this makes me think of my dad. He grew bleeding hearts on each side of our front steps. They never failed to bloom and please

Love your blog facelift! I just figured out why I couldn't work out the link gadget in the way that you described it. It was because I was working under "old editor". So now I'm on "updated editor" and the menu with "link" on it looks the way you described it. I have so many more new options with the updated editor so I'm a happy blogger!

Lovely image, Dimple! Thank you for your comment today! Very thoughtful.

DUTA said...

Their charm is striking. I like not only the heart-shaped flowers, but also their thin arching stems.

The picture is a strong one showing an entire cycle on one stem: a flowering bleeding heart, two declining in appearance, and one dying. Very cool!
