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.

Flowers

I found this flower recently while on a walk.
Each blossom is very small, about 1/2 inch across. 
I don't know what the plant is called,
but it is beautiful.

I don't know what it's called either but it is pretty. The B & W brings out it's features.

Dimple, this is beautiful. I have a similar shot with a single white flower and you have inspired me to post for next week.

It's as if they are stretching their heads to hear something they didn't quite catch just now.

I'm in a black-and-white mood this weekend myself :)... refurbishing my kitchen tool drawer...taking out the ugly things and buying new b & w pieces :) Does that mean I have too much time on my hands?

Beautiful flower Louise, perfect in black and white. I really like how you put the actual measurements in the macro..that's a great idea because if you don't already know the flower it's hard to tell.

It's sheer delight when you spot an unexpected dainty flower... and this macro is pleasing in monochrome, Dimple.

I should have known you would have found {and photographed!} such a tiny flower!

Wonder what it is???

Who cares!

Very cool.

Cheryl said...

I'd love to know what color it is so I could track it down. Sweet shot.

David said...

Very nice!
Now Dimple let me ask you...do you have the same trouble as I do switching to black and white with a beautiful flower? I can photograph everything else and not miss the colors...except flowers!
Still, I get over it enough to find the forms and textures fascinating.
