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.

Mushrooms are fun to look at and the B&W really brings out the details.

Patricia said...

Great detail. Your pictures make the ordinary extraordinary.

Ralph said...

These are lovely, especially in B&W - the fungi are illuminating the forest floor, guiding us along under the canopy of trees. Natural beauty at its finest!

fabulous shot. My dgt loves photography and we were just out with her taking pics of mushrooms. The beauty I think is looking and seeing what most don't. Beautiful!!

I have a "soft spot" for these white, fleshy, humble-looking organisms that have so many uses in our life.
Your white and black photo of the mushrooms is simply... a delight.

(Thanks for your comment on my last post. Hope I've somehow answered your question regarding the monument).

Laura said...
