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.

See It Sunday: Fish

This is from my archive. I published an unedited version before,
but for the See It Sunday theme this week, which is "Fish,"
I did some cropping and cleaning.
The edit also revealed some subtle reflections, so I am submitting it for Weekend Reflections as well.

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

This would make a beautiful shirt, loose and breezy to move with the wearer and with the wind.

This is an unusual composition - a fish and what looks like a rainbow or a flag.
Very original!
