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.
Excellent in black and white. Hope you're having a wonderful Montana visit!! (Been wondering where you were...)
Beautiful and unique picture, very nice. That dog is a real horseman... horsedog
Fantastic! I can see why you had this sudden urge!
Gotta luv it.
Sometimes horses just have a person on them and there's nothing we can do about it. LOL
I like this photo, Louise, especially in B&W.

This is great. Usually the situations like this one happen when I do not have my camera with me)
What a striking , beautiful picture in black and white!
It displays representatives of two civilizations on the road: horses and cars. Women do both: ride horses and drive cars.
Great B&W shot. Have a wonderful trip and enjoy the visit with your children. Be safe. Mickie :)
I'm glad you did! Not a usual scene. My eyes were first drawn to the dog.
Thank you for your condolence on my personal blog Louise.
I'm glad you did! There's a whole story here in one picture.
She'd be a fun person to talk to.
When entertainment walks by, you must get up from the table!
I think she looks as if she is glad to be photographed. All new gear too. Do you know where she was going?
tres bon b&w, une photo qui sort de l'ordinaire, j'aime beaucoup
Merci d'avoir participer au challenge "Walk In The Street Photography"
You didn't photograph a person - it's a way of life! What a wonderful thing to see, and you managed to catch it on camera. Very well done!
What a fantastic shot lol Love it. Makes me thing of the "Bremer city mucisicians, a european fairytale
I love the blend of past and present...but of course it is all present. Great shot!
It is a fantastic shot, I think I would hav had to go out and take a shot too. I like that the dog has it own horse, very cool sight to see. Looks perfect in B&W.
Such a cultural piece of artwork you've created with your camera!!!
Happy Camera Critter Day. Here is my LINK Hope to see you stop by for a visit!!
My kind of country. Love the dog riding on top. - Margy
love it! that's a well-trained doggie. and a fantastic capture. I hope you're having the time of your life Dimple.
really nice shot
Seems like a great Montana scene and I have never been there!.
Nice catch Dimple. You weren't photographing a person, you were photographing an event. Way cool!
Drop me a message when you post your B&W/sepia.
this is a photo just waiting to be taken :)
I've never been brave enough to take a photo of anyone who didn't know I was taking their picture. :)
Lovely in black and white!
Hope you continue to have a wonderful time!
Did you count how many of us missed the dog? I didn't notice it until I read some of the comments! Great shot.
awesome photo! What a great place to go visiting..
Thanks for stopping by mine.
Fantastic capture - so many wonderful b&w contrasts.
Great photo! I love it in black and white.
Oh to know the story behind the photo subject! I love the dog riding with such purpose. Great shot. Dave at photoviews
Wow! This is a very interesting picture! I like it a lot. Hopefully you will photograph more people after this. :)
This is just too good to pass up! The dog on the horse is precious. Another great catch, Dimple (or should I call you Louise?... it's hard to know what people prefer: their "nom de plume" or real name.)
