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.

What fun! Maybe the emergency was a strong need for a comfy place to sleep.

Oh my...I hope the cat isn't thrown off if that truck has to attend to an emergency! A great fun shot.

Love the skunk Cabbage shots. I kinda like looking at the stuff---so brillian yellow and green. MB

I am hoping that previous comment is right-a comfortable and perhaps warmer place to sleep

So, the vehicle became a emergency sleeping place for a cat who needed desperately to sleep safe? Nice and fun shot!
