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.

Bench with Bricks

This is the same style bench as last week's. I like the repetition of the iron slats in the side of the bench and the waste container, and the variations of line through the picture.

To see more benches, visit Visual Norway and For the Love of Benches.

Thanks for linking my blog. . .

I like the way you took the shot for your bench. We have those kind of trash cans here at some bus stops and in our downtown areas.

Thanks for stopping by.

Someone with a sense for design must have put these together (or probably made both). Nice-looking couple!
