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.
wow--that's quite the process.
Oh my, that looks like such a hard job! Sweet kitty...so curious!
Visiting from Mosiac Monday :)
good story to go with the pics. Looks like it was a big job to change that tyre out in the paddock!
Have a wonderful week, and thanks for stopping by my blog to say hi.
Nice to meet you!
Wow, he worked very hard getting the tire changed. Love the grey inspector checking the work. Happy MM.
Wow! Who knew?!!!! Love the kitty supervisor!
Oh my goodness - what a lot of work. I've never thought about how one would change a tractor tire - now I know!
Great collage of the sequence of events ;-)
Great collage! It takes a while to get it done..!
This is a process that can be performed by physical efforts it is true. Yet, it is one where you have to use your mind to, to determine the success of the process -where to place the jack, safely for instance. Really, a fine job that most would not want to do, but this person does the work with pride, and the knowledge that his efforts helped you. A job well done!
As for the cat, they always seem ready to help just after the job is finished...
That is huge!!
What a great post for Labor Day! He is a credit to his profession -- and that's a lot of work. Happy tractoring!
A terrific collage! Gee, I thought changing my bicycle tire was hard!
It's a huge tire!
A super photo essay!
What a big job!

Speaking of "Labor Day", he took it literally didn't he! That looks like a ton of work. What a clever post. Have a good week. Mickie :)
That is a very large tire to change, - there is beauty in the efficiency with which it was done, - and in your record of the task as well. Love the last picture of the cat, satisfying her curiosity.
That is really hard work. Good to see that it all worked out. Fun to see the cat helping out too.
It is a great post for Labor Day and it looks like a very hard job. Thanks for sharing, have a great week!
You make my hair stand on end, our tractor we have had for twenty years and it was definitely not new to start with.
That is one job I definitely am not keen on. Thank goodness you found someone to do it for you.
A great post showing townies that life on the land is not always idyllic.
You are so right ~ We are Co-Creator's ~ Awesome photography ~ namaste,Great for RT ~ Carol (A Creative Harbor)
That is quite a process indeed! What great shots! Hope it isn't anything you have to do often!! Love the curious cat, too! Have a great week, Dimple!
I love how the cat seems to be there at the end to do a quality inspection
it could be an homage to the working person :)
It never occurred to me that tractor tires weren't filled with air. What a huge job...glad you didn't have to tackle it by yourself.
What a job! This is the kind of thing that we townies never think about.
Yikes, that looks like quite a job!
My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!
Definitely not an easy task. :-) Very cool mosaic.
I have watched this many many times and it amazes me every time. These men are very strong. It looks very hard to me. B
I think we all tend to take a lot of things for granted! Your post certainly made me acknowledge, too, the importance of so many things in my life.
Goodness gracious, changing a car tire will never seem so difficult a task again!
My Ruby Tuesday is at:
this time complete with poetry!!
Dimple, I am wondering if my comment went through so am trying again. It I double up, delete one of them. I have seen many many tractors out here in the country where we live, but never have I considered how to change one of the tires. That is one huge undertaking and a tiring one I would think. Your mosaic really does tell the story well. Loved it. Genie PS....thanks for your comment and note about the changes in My World Tuesdays. The minute I read your note, I knew what I had done and quickly corrected it.
This is a pretty funky and interesting octopus your found in the window...and your capture of the image is fine. Love the colors. Nice work this week. genie
What a lot of work this looks like! Glad he finally got it finished.
Wow, that is a huge job! I guess I never really considered what a lot of work it would be to change tires on a tractor... Thanks for sharing at MM> :)
This mosaic is a fine tribute to manual work and the people that still do it.
Great relevance to Labor Day too!
What a BIG job! I have really enjoyed this collage showing the process of changing the tire on your tractor.
Thank you also for stopping by and leaving your sweet words concerning my mom. They were greatly appreciates!
Now I understand how such a big tire can be replaced on the tractor in the collage. I love the last photo, a cat curiously peeping into the tire - lovely!
