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.

Drives me crazy that about every fourth or fifth post I cannot see the image--and I cannot figure out what the problem is so I can't fix it. Though I can't see this image I know it is wonderful...

Oh, the colors on this frame around the reflection are delicious...leathery and warm. Can't help but wonder where and what this is...must be mirror framed by a horse collar of some sort reflecting a restaurant? I'm such a voyeur!!!
