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.

Used Cows???

Off Interstate 90 in Montana is a little town called Drummond. Hubby and I wanted lunch, so we pulled into town and stopped at the Wagon Wheel. Nice cafe! Anyway, I looked out the window and noticed this across the road. It's called Mentzer's Used Cow Lot! After I had a good laugh I snapped this through the glass of the cafe. I think it will do well for Window Views!

I must shamefully admit that I don't know the meaning of this particular sign, but I do know that the outdoors is full with funny signs and posters waiting to be captured by a camera.

I tell you, on our trip through the south, the signs were the most entertaining thing! Love it!

Even funnier is that Google assigned an ad to this page about "well treated dairy cows" from the CA dairy assn.
