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.

Room With a View...

A forest room:
Shaded
Floor of twigs

Windows

Doors

And views.

This is gorgeous, Louise. I reminds me of making "rooms" outdoors when I was a child. Little Kay would have loved this room.

I like the overexposed distance. It works well here.

I, too, am fond of the overexposed background. Normally, it would draw your eye from the subject, but in this case, it enhances the mystery.

I prefer open vista views, preferably with water... but dang, what I wouldn't give to see this right now! Gorgeous textures for monochrome, Dimple.
