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.

There is always a subject to be found - if you look for it :-) And you have.

PS Thank you for the comment. This was shot at about 500m above sea level four weeks ago, but the snow is now gone.

Weeds are common plants, usually unwanted ones.
Those in your picture look unusual, prolific.
As far as weeds and art is concerned, I recall there was a TV series entitled Weeds, a film starring Nick Nolte called Weeds, and now your fascinating black and white photo named Weeds.

I agree with your statement. And I have a lot of weeds to experiment on.

The textures here make the composition feel like a bas relief sculpture.

"A weed is a flower in the wrong place", but these were obviously in thre right place. Lovely design.
