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.

Shadowy Shelves

These urns were on display at a local craft store.
I think they are beautiful this way!

Colorful Caboose

This caboose isn't going anywhere. It is an exhibit at a local museum, and the tracks under it are not much longer than the car!

I took these shots early this month. Most of the snow is gone now; if you look closely you will see that it was raining when these were made, and we have had a lot of rain since.
In this last picture, you can see the stove pipe. The stove burned wood to keep the men inside warm in winter.

Cabooses are no longer used. I think trains without them are severely lacking in character, but no one asked my opinion!
This is my post for Mellow Yellow Monday, Ruby Tuesday, and Watery Wednesday, and Color Carnival. Click the links to see more wonderful pictures!

Watery Rainbow

This is a fish in our aquarium. The rainbow is reflected from the inside. I thought that it was a wonderful effect, and even more wonderful was that I was able to capture it! Except for reducing the size of the file, this is unedited. It is my submission for Mellow Yellow Monday, Ruby Tuesday, and Watery Wednesday. I hope everyone is having a great week!
