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.

Goodness, this can be anything our imagination deems. Perhaps an anonymous office tower in an anonymous city. Or a giant CD holder. Or a giant cold air return for the heat/AC. Or...the horizontal and vertical motif could be lots of things - my imagination is running out of ideas. Whith makes this a great post!

Such an evocative, ambiguous photo - and the tall format is interesting too - it seems to go on forever. Could look at this all day!

Gorgeous interior shot. The lines and lighting really add to the film noir feeling.
