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.

Your photos of these are wonderful! I have only seen a few in my life and it looks like they are in abundance where you live.

I used to love to take photos of mushrooms when I could get down on my knees and use macro lens. My bionic knees are not so flexible, so I'll just enjoy your fabulous b/w photo.

So delicate. A fine photo.

I'm sorry to be so late visiting - I had a very busy weekend!
