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.

Hi Marvellous Hobittess Dimple !!! ;)

This picture is so pretty... I like the way you chose to compose it, with the flower on the right : very unexpected.

Regarding your last comment :

I've read your comment about the reflections in convexe mirrors and you are so so so true on that matter ! Thanks for sharing this thought with me, I cherish your wisdom.

The flower in B&W looks very graceful.
As there was no colour film (to ordinary people) when I was young and all my old photos are on B&W, my grandchildren have often asked me, *Grannie, what was it like when everything was in black& white?*
They really thought everything in the world was black & white!
