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.

Red and Yellow Columbine

It was wonderfully sunny today, but this plant was in a shady spot.
I think columbines are wonderful, they are perennial and also
reseed freely. I even have a few in my lawn!

Check out Mellow Yellow Monday and Ruby Tuesday!

Used Cows???

Off Interstate 90 in Montana is a little town called Drummond. Hubby and I wanted lunch, so we pulled into town and stopped at the Wagon Wheel. Nice cafe! Anyway, I looked out the window and noticed this across the road. It's called Mentzer's Used Cow Lot! After I had a good laugh I snapped this through the glass of the cafe. I think it will do well for Window Views!
