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.

Reflections on a mushroom


It has been an amazing season for mushrooms--
I can't seem to go out without seeing more of them.
In this one, if you look closely, you will see
branches of trees and a blob that is me!

I see you, and the branches, in gray, and I also see a pretty flower in white near the upper right. A beautiful picture.

Even though they may grow in shadow, rising up to the light.

Please have a good start into the weekend.

I love autumn, - its beauty is so subtle and your mushroom is quite elegant.

Those green eyes blinking at me off to the side are perfect for the season.

Interesting that it can be so shiny that if shows a reflection . . . I don't find many mushrooms to photograph.

Who'd a thunk it? a reflection in a mushroom! You win the prize for originality!

I reconize here a a russula (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russula), but it is too old to be sure if it is eatable or not, so I won't recommand to try it...

I do not think that I have ever seen a pink shiny 'shroom, but you certainly have. I'm glad to know that you did not eat it.

Wonderful reflection with a unique reflector!

I like to look beautiful mushrooms but I don't eat them :) This looks great with the reflection...
Have a good week ahead!

You have a good eye, Dimple for such things and a great capture!

Glad you stopped by Dimple. Your mushroom is neat but yucky to eat. I went out with color film in my camera the other day. Took a few shots but the light was in and out. Shot a few more of the grandkids dressed in their costumes and still have a few left for one more excursion this week.
