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, you and Julie over at Being Ruby are artists on the web! This is exquisite...wish I knew how to play around on Picasa...
That's a very interesting shot. Very creative.
So welcome when they appeare :)
Different and creative as I like.
This is very delicate, and the light is beautiful.
Experimenting is such fun and this shot turned out really well. In some ways it resembles the old negatives we used to get. genie
I love your blog. Your photography is wonderful too. I was especially struck by what you wrote about where credit is due. I feel much the same way.
In fact, I've always wanted to draw like him--these days sometimes He lets me draw with Him. (grin)
For which I am deeply grateful. Have a lovely weekend!
so pretty...love the special effects!
I love the effect.....
I envy your ability to play with Picasa.
The term I would apply to your photo is 'Delicacy' - delicate flowers,leaves, and light.
It is a wonderful photo - and greatly seen how to take a shot of them snowdrops ;)
My contribution is to find here:
The pencil sketch is very cool!
I have tried it on a few photos, some look good, some not so much. :)
Love this one!
Nice lighting in your original it seems. Wish I could really pencil sketch anything. :)
Very nice picture.
Wishing you a good Sunday.
