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 these very much... now and again I come across pictures such as this when blogging and realise I'm smiling... and then realise how much the same we all are no matter where we are in the world.
Thank you for all you visits and for taking the time to leave me a comment..
I was glad you liked the picture of the Gorse... I must find you a picture of it in flower... beautiful yellow flowers that can flower all year round. If I come across one soon I will post it for you and let you know.
The Gorse that the feather was caught on is the home to a family of rabbits... I think there is around 20 or so that have burrows in the Gorse. In spring birds nest in them as they provide safety.

Just called back to say you are correct... the horse is on the same ill as where the 'spring' was from an earlier posting. I have just updated... and followed your lead with a sculpture I came across on the same walk as the hill pictures. I hope you can make time to see my owl shots.
