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.

Whimsy

This whimsical art on the side of an old grain elevator amused me.

God gave you a gift of an eye for a well framed photograph. He gave you a creative mind and a heart that loves visual things. You are wise not to take all the credit. He created you with gifts you are using. I believe he will say one day..Well done thy good and faithful servant.

Very original and unique. At least, it improves the looks of the building.

The imagination makes for a unique and artistic building. Although I should bring an umbrella before I go. Better safe than sorry!
