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.

Ms. Becky said...

you've gone inside, in more than one way. lovely reflections dear Dimple.

Dianne said...

Even reflections off those little silver salt and pepper lids!

Simple but yet so interesting and nice. Did you know the sugar things have the colors of the packages in a particular order. I did not know that until last summer. The order is for the hard of sight people so they will know where to find the type they want. Of course, if the container is turned they might get a reverse order. Anyway, it is a neat fact I learned about at a lovely restaurant. genie

Is that sweet n low in the pink package? We don't have that here :-)

Happy weekend!

James said...

Praise and thanks to the Lord! That's a great reminder to all of us!

I love reflections too. I'd have to suggest the restauant put a little Splenda in the "sugar" container. I have to carry my own. I guess it is too expensive, but it will soon be 'generic' I think.

EG Wow said...

I never would have thought of that! Cool idea, Dimple!

I know what you mean -- it is fun to see reflections from unexpected places like this one.

Your B&W flowers in the post below are wonderful.

Simple and ordinary things can be seen in a new light through the eyes of a creative photographer!

SEEING RED

A man who was out of his head
Was claiming he always saw red.
He saw it all day,
At work and at play,
And saw it at night while in bed.
