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.

I'm curious: Did you really catch that yellow leaf in mid-flight or is it caught in an invisible spider's web?

Dianne said...

the 'some have let go' shot is pure magic!!

So sad to see them let go...but, I guess, that's just the natural way...

Viola said...

Oh!! So gorgeous! Beautiful colors and I especially fancy the leaf drifting away.. :)

Now, just today, I discovered that all the leaves have gone.. The trees are naked.. bare.. :(
But... then we have to wait for the snow.. :)

Fantastic shots! The trade off to living in north Florida is that I don't get to see much of a fall change, though we have some sort of Maple (I think) in the front yard which I adore. It is the only leaf change I get around here.

My favorite is the fourth from the top. Belongs on a postcard! Fall has always been a reminder to me of the seasonal nature of life. I think change is hard not see in this season ... even when we might otherwise miss it.

Hope you are doing well.

I like the way you have caught leaves mid fight.
I think the second photo has really lovely colours in it.
