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.

Summer Sky


Summer is almost over, but the trees are still in their summer clothes.
I love fall, but I am willing to wait!

Nice B&W and a lovely capture of the trees silhouetted against the summery clouds.

Sometimes black and white can say it better than a rainbow of colors. You've done just that!

Nicely done in monochrome. And yes, the trees are still wearing their summer wardrobe!

How wonderful to hear from you.... to get your comment on my recent 'tire' posting.

There are so many bloggers from past travels that I've lost touch with over the years, so I was glad to see you.... think it's been a little while, hasn't it?

BTW, enjoyed your B&W photo... a lovely shot.

Surprising in black and white and surprisingly good! Some trees are already dark brown here, the horse chestnuts mostly.

The silhouette of the leaves is lovely! Very graceful.
