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.

These pictures were all taken in the last three weeks.
I have never before, in the 30 years I have been here, seen so many mushrooms!

This was taken September 19.
It was a sunny day after several rainy ones, and Doggy and I were enjoying the light.
These red mushrooms caught my eye, even though they were exceptionally small.
The birch limb behind them was less than two inches in diameter!
After I put the pics from that day on my computer, I found a spider.
It's in the middle, just under the curl of birch bark, can you see it?
Then just this morning, I noticed another critter, an insect!
If you follow a diagonal line up from the center of the small red mushroom,
through the large one and the spider,
you will find it.
I think it may be the spider's dinner!
So I think this picture will do for
Straight Out of the Camera Sunday
Drop on by these great memes!
Update: Gemma at Greyscale Territory has a meme I just discovered, and I'm contributing this pic for it also. It's called Weekend Nature; check it out, and maybe contribute something of your own!
