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.

Monochrome Shadow

This is the side of a theater in town. It is an old building, and has had some close calls with the wrecking ball. I am glad that it wasn't destroyed! I like the repetition of shape between the window and the bicycle rack.

This is my submission for Monochrome Weekend and Shadow Shot Sunday. Click the links to see more of each!

Idaho Evening Sky

From my archive, taken early last September. Those of you who have been visiting for a while may recognize the location, as it is a favorite place of mine for capturing beautiful scenes.

For more skies, visit Skywatch Friday and Looking at the Sky on Friday. To see other reflections, try Weekend Reflections, and for scenics you will like Scenic Sunday.

Bench in Black & White

Posted by Picasa
I took this last month on the same day as some other posted photos. It was a good day for photography!
This has been cropped, the contrast adjusted, and a red filter applied. I like it! 

For more monochrome photos visit Monochrome Weekend.
You can find Shadow Shot Sunday here.

Monochrome Scene

I like this old barn. I took its picture last November and used a green filter when I converted the color shot to black & white. It works for two memes--Monochrome Weekend and Scenic Sunday. Follow the links to see more great pictures!

Perfect Sky, Perfect Reflection

Last Sunday was gorgeous. I was the passenger and was able to snap these as we crossed a bridge.
Perfectly calm, just a few clouds.
Perfect for Skywatch Friday, Looking at the Sky on Friday, and Weekend Reflections. I hope everyone has a great week!
