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.
He did indeed make you a gift of the fallen tree behind the little orchid. Don't know which of the two was the greater gift.
I adore those unexpected juxtapositions.
This Dicentra is overpowering when you see it so large. Especially for a hobbit I would expect :-)

I like bleeding heart, awesome shot!
Very lovely and delicate.
This flowers are amazing. Lovely capture.
Wonderful picture! We (the neighbors) have a variety of bleeding hearts -- it's the only spring flower here at our Florida place that is remotely like anything we grew in Oregon. I have some pix of them and will try to post eventually. But your picture is purtier than mine will ever be ;>) -- thanks for sharing.
These hearts are full of love, the pink ruby flowers lovely! We have one of these in our front yard. The life cycle of each 'heart' is shorter than we would like. However short, the views of these ruby beauties are to savor!
The combination of the two words bleeding and hearts is very powerful. So is the combination of ruby colour and flowers that look like hearts.
Beautiful. Reminds me of my brother...he had lots of bleeding heart plants in his yard.
your composition is flawless!
I wrote this last week for another blogger who displayed bleeding hearts, and I thought you might like it too:
SOME EXQUISITE NONSENSE
My heart is bleeding,
My hair’s receding—
Oh, dear! Oh, what shall I do?
Are not canaries—
And neither, my dear are you!

Have a great day, hope to see you stop by to visit.
It's interesting to know the name of flowers in foreign languages. Japanese "taitsuri-so" is "Bleeding Hearts" in English. Does the name derived from the image of agonies of broken heart as red heart-shaped flowers are weeping? Thank you for the lovely photo.
