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.

Bringing a camera to a restaurant is perfectly acceptable - while waiting for the entree, one could engage in conversation, take pictures or a combination thereof. No need to forego such great shadows!

Terrific shadow shot for the day! Amazing how many we can find once we start looking for them, isn't it? Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!

Love SOOC photos. I point mine out when I have them. Even though I try to get that every shot, it just is not possible
