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.

Afternoon Commute

I don't have any idea why he would need two hats!

There's actually a little man in the backpack.

Good question. I suspect he can't wear the wide-brimmed one while riding because it would blow off, but he wants it for walking. Just a guess. (I'm reasonably sure there isn't a little man in the backpack, but I could be wrong.)

You never know when another hat will come in handy. Nice shot, it looks like a nice place to ride.

Big date or job interview at the end of the line. He's a hat, man!

Sylvia K said...

I like the little man on his back idea!! What a fun shadow shot for the day, Dimple!! Hope your weekend is going well!

The bicycle commuter has the perfect sense to bring a change a clothes to dress into at the end of the day. And if the clothes will be different, a different hat is a fine idea, too. The accessories make all the difference in style!

Could have drop somewhere a son or a friend? hehe. Here's my SSS share. Happy Sunday!

Jeanette said...

Nice shot. I guess the other hat would be best if it were raining, so he takes it along just in case.

Great shot, perhaps there is a little man in the backpack! I like that idea ..hehe

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

In case the wind blew off the other? Your guess is as good as mine.

Love the photo...the background is a 'crowning' feature.


Have a happy Sunday.

Gen said...

Maybe he just like to have two hats hehhe. Happy SSS!

Mine is here

Spadoman said...

And relative to the weather around where I live, I wonder why he'd need a hat at all along with those long sleeves! Great capture of real life in a real world.

Great catch!

Very well seen.

Ha! This is fun. Nice shot.

Kelly said...

I had to do a double take to make sure there wasn't a small body under that second hat! Fun shot. :)

One hat is for biking, the other for courting. What? No? Then, I don't know!


Hello, there, I’m your shadow,
I tag after you;
Whatever you are doing,
That is what I do.

If you should fling a football
Forty yards or more,
I’ll be right beside you,
Evening the score.

If you should flick a booger
From your stuffy nose,
I will surely do the same—
Watch how far it goes!

So, friend, be very careful
What you say and do—
Whatever you are doing,
I’ll do just as you!

Evelyn said...

haha, yes why!

kat said...

It looks like there's a little man at the back, or the other hat is for walking haha. Thanks anyway for the SSS visit yesterday.

Great shadow -- and how funny -- maybe he wants to dress up when he gets where he's going? (Or where he'd been?)
