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.

September Rose

This lovely carefree rose keeps blooming.
It is the same bush as my August Rose post,
but a different bloom and a different day.

This is Straight Out of the Camera:
I zoomed both with my feet and the lens for the close-up:

H is for Hay

I was driving home one day last July, and these people were making hay.
The top pic shows the windrows, and the bottom two show the tractor pulling the baler.
Haying is hard work.

August Rose

 I took this last month. It is a bush rose which we planted some years ago.
It gets almost no care, and is still fragrant and lovely.
It is my favorite kind of rose!

Summer Sky

Summer is almost over, but the trees are still in their summer clothes.
I love fall, but I am willing to wait!
