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.

The crystal clear lake is a wonderful mirrored canvas for this beauty. The Gem State is stunning, the trees and hills best viewed by looking up...or down, too!

Barb said...

The framing of your photo is awesome - it's like an optical illusion. Happy weekend to you, too.

Wow! That is a knockout. Easier to work out when looking at the enlarged version. Great stuff, Dimple. Nature at its most engrossing.

Whoa! Pull up the horses! THAT is one stunning photograph! I'm looking at clouds in an absolutely still stretch of water--a brand new view of the world! and so crystal clear!
Every morning, before the fountain goes on, I can look down from my balcony onto the still pond below. It always reflects a perfect picture of our condominium neighborhood. I always say I should take a picture but I don't find the buildings all that awesome...

I love mirrored skies, even though I have the tendency to turn my head very much sidewards (giggle) - this one is very beautiful!
