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.

I like your black and white version better than the colour - it has more shine :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

The shine and reflection are so dramatic!

Serline said...

Great shiny effect! Have a great weekend!

A great capture, - so good in B&W!

Fabulous photo, Louise, and I'll bet it could go really fast, too. The angle of your photo, with the front wheels higher than the back ones, does give it an air of speed. Beautifully done.

Wow, that is one clean and shiny car or some kind of magic in your hands (and eyes), Louise!

That beautiful gleaming car is like a mirror. It does give the impression of speed.

I must confess that at first sight, it looked to me like a car hit by a rocket And then, I saw the black, the white, and the shiny parts and... I liked it.
