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.

September Rose


This lovely carefree rose keeps blooming.
It is the same bush as my August Rose post,
but a different bloom and a different day.

This is Straight Out of the Camera:

I zoomed both with my feet and the lens for the close-up:

Beautiful bloom.

Love the color of this rose.

Ralph said...

This is a lovely rose, as the sea of green in the area was crying out for a boldly colored rose. And it is quite a rose, and the shadowy underside adds an elegant touch to the lovely flower. Wonderful capture!

Another excellent capture Miss Dimple Dear. I had to give up on roses for now. I planted a Veteran's Honor and Laura Bush and neither ended up liking our zone up north. Oh well, I can enjoy your pics!

What a stunningly rich shade of fuschia. Gorgeous.
