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.
They look so alive! Beautiful!
I can even see a little spider web in between! Nice shot. :)
New leaves are so delicate, and you've caught the beautiful light so well.
Good that there are two of them. If there was a photo of beautiful but lonely leaf, it would make me sad)).
The light on the new leaves is perfect.
Oh lovely. Great lighting and composition!
Nice Dimple. I think I'll be dragging my tripod and macro stuff along on my next trip to the park.
You've captured them so beautifully!
This is definitely my kind of shot. I am always taking photos of the leaves in my yard...and I love to do it in black and white. This is a wonderful capture. Your leaves seem to be floating in air. Just another wonderful gift form Mother Nature.
