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.

Gates at the Ready


These are designed to be gates in a field or corral fence.
They were removed from one place,
and now they are waiting,
ready to be used again.

Beautiful contrast between the metal of the gates and the supple grasses.

I like the photo Dimple. The diagonals pull you in and hold the image together. Nice textures too.

Oh Dimple, Thank you so much for your comment on my blog regarding Maria and her being healed after all. That really touched me.
