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.

There must be millions of little streams like this across the globe - each one unique, each one precious and life-giving. Your lovely photo makes us stop to look and - hopefully - think about the wonderful world we live in.

Oh my, the soft sheen of the light falling on the water...this is a place where I can fall right in!

Genie said...

Beautiful! It is wonderful that these type waters are now free form all the ice and snow, and we can finally see green and all of the interestingly formed rocks and little pebbles. This is one of those magical shots in my book.

Your running water photo turned out so much better than the ones that I attempted yesterday!

But, it looks like you might have had a tad bit more water to work with than I did....

;-)

Beautiful!
