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.

The view is lovely Dimple and your image does it justice. I feel present on the scene. The reflections are delicious.

I think it was Rocky and Bullwinkle, one of the greatest cartoon shows ever. Went way over the kid's heads.

I can see why with those crystal waters and the clear skies... It is amazing how beautiful our world around us is and how often we take it for granted.

Enjoy your weekend, mon amie.
