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.

August Rose


 I took this last month. It is a bush rose which we planted some years ago.
It gets almost no care, and is still fragrant and lovely.
It is my favorite kind of rose!

A lovely photo Dimple, - the colours and the composition are beautiful, and the rose quite stunning against the blurred background.

It's lovely, and even better that it's so low maintenance.

We're back in Israel now btw, but we did have a great visit in the States.

Your rose has a beautiful color. My roses don't get much attention either, and they always produce blooms.
