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.

What a sweetheart. When we had a litter of puppies several years ago, I of course had to name them all before I sent them on their way. One was "Nutmeg"!! Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

I do see a reflective visage on this canine friend!
LOVE THAT REFLECTION!
Tell reflections that you love them,
Spurn reflections, if you dare.
Keep reflections out of darkness,
Keep them in the sun’s harsh glare!

I love Dogs and this one looks to really be begging for something, maybe just a little pet on the head or a rub behind the ear.
So sweet! Great cropping.
