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.

Looks like a window that could have entered into the contest for our Sea Fair last July. Cute critter! - Margy

That is one eye-catcing window alright -- and it looks more like something you'd see on the Oregon Coast than in Idaho. At least it looks like a squid or octupus to me.

I can see why that windrow caught your eye. It is very eye catching. Must have caught a fortune. Regardless, it is a lovely sight to see.

Great capture. The free flowiness of that octopus is indeed eye-catching.
