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.

You do a great job on these "technical" photos. You have a great eye! B&W is perfect for this shot.

I like this shot Dimple. I wonder how it would look stopped down using a good tripod for support? It's tough deciding the focus plane. Nonetheless, this is an excellent composition well rendered in B&W.

Thanks for your comments about my river pic. I encourage folks to click to enlarge the images I post. Too small and you miss a lot.

Yeah, a dark frame would help the image to pop.

I love including a narrative. Combining words and images seems natural to me. Glad my words help.

The pattern of the gears and the lines of the cable are mesmerizing.
