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.

It's amazing how the way you frame a picture, and the choice to use black and white takes something most of us would overlook and turns it into a really interesting subject.
Have a great Sunday!

I've got the tools, but it has never crossed my mind that I could achieve a composition such as yours. A white and black picture of some of the most basic tools.
Great, practical idea and picture!

In moving his tool chest a couple of days ago Bill spilled a whole huge drawer full of screws and nails; I've been helping him by sorting and putting them away and until I saw your picture here, believe me, I never once saw the beauty in them ;>)

I assume he successfully put everything back together. :))
