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.

Beautiful gathering of lacey shadows! Mother Nature is an artiste extraordinaire! And we need to have the curiosity to notice! A great find!

it's difficult to make delicate shadows look so good in black and white but that's what you did :)

The black and white seems to add a warmth to the lacy shadow. The rock it falls on is hard, but the shadow softens it so well. The woods are quiet, the filtered sun is very inviting...

Beautiful lacy shadows. Soft but clear plants being cast upon the rock.
Happy Sunday!

Shadows often make a photo. Most of the time we try to avoid them! Here they work.

It's so nice when the shadows make sense and don't disturb an exposure :) Lovely picture...I'm feeling woodsy.
Happy Monday,
Becky

The lacey shadows on the rock and the light of the sun captured in your above picture, ,remind me of the famous song "A shadow of your smile".
The song mentions love, spring, joy, light - all the good things we dream about.

Even the most fitful sun will usually cooperate for a second or two--long enough to get a shadow shot!
