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're particularly wonderful in B&W, Louise, so we see the texture instead of the color.

Wonderful, forsythia is at beatyful flower..;-D
I agree with Kay. Its all about composition and texture. Color would get in the way!
I love forsythia and this makes a lovely monochrome shot.
Yes, the monochrome effect adds drama to image, nice!
I would never have thought of shooting forsythia in black and white, but it turned at stunning. I really do like it. Am becoming convinced that b/w-monochromatic photography is by far my favorite. This one is beautiful. Such a special capture. Hope you have a wonderful camera filled weekend.
Forsooth forsythia Dimple. I like the patterns and B&W is the best way to show forms here.
A great monochrome shot!
Fading flowers express as much symbolism as flowers in their prime do. In many ways, they are more interesting :)
The vase makes it all come together. I love the textures and yes, dried flowers can be lovely.
Happy B&W, Dimple.
They make an interesting pattern. The curves echo the shape of the vase.
Gorgeous flowers, a delight. Excellent, with nice tones in B & W
