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.

Ruby Lures


Summer means fishing.
Fish are attracted by flashing light.
These attract fish.

Visit Mary for more Ruby Tuesday!

Like Stan says, earrings!
The photograph lures me in :) The unusual angle makes them seem super-sized and other-worldly.

Wow, ruby red and lovely greenish turquoise. I'm probably a fish because I'm really attracted to this photo!

At first I thought they might be Christmas ornaments! They are quite pretty!

Looks like they might make great earrings, too. We have a lot of fishing gear which are unique ornaments!!!

Love those colors -- they attract me. I've seen those fish-lure earrings around too. For whoever uses them for the real purpose, good luck!

Those look like the earrings I'm giving away on my photoblog!
