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.
How often do we forget to look up, especially when we're doing some mundane chore like going to the dump? Gorgeous snow on the trees, and a soft, soft sky behind. It's lovely, Louise.
What a contrast! Beautiful photo.
I always love to see silver birches! Especially against such a blue sky!
I have always liked birch trees. With your digital camera you have now turned their bark into bytes.
I really love this photo, birch trees are wonderful.
Nice shot Dimple. Birches are neat trees. We have a river birch in our yard.
Very nice photo.
I like the composition.
Regards and best wishes
Incredibly beautiful tree you show.
Wishing you a good weekend.

At first I read "I was down in the dumps" yesterday ... and I thought, that doesn't sound like Dimple at all! OK so you were just dumping trash. Lovely picture -- shows you that beauty is out there everywhere if you just open your eyes!
Lovely shots of the birch trees. I am always looking up. Great angle and skywatch shot. Have a great weekend and happy skywatching!
