Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday

I'm so happy that the California Poppies are blooming. This was taken, right here in Murrieta, on a windy day; there's some "vibration" going on in the photo. Check back tomorrow, I'm posting more poppy photos.

Do you ever take a photo that you love; it comes out so well, (straight from the camera), that you're not tempted to do anything with it. It's wonderful and you want to share it. I've decided to start a new meme - Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday. I'll host it here, each Sunday. So put your thinking cap on, scroll through your files and decide what to post. The subject is open, no weekly theme, just have fun. On Sunday morning, actually at 12:00 PM PST, on Saturday, I post my SOOC Sunday, and Mr. Linky.

What are the rules? On any Sunday you can post any photo you like (it must be one of your own) that hasn’t been tweaked or altered in any way (cropping is OK). In other words Straight Out Of the Camera.


  1. Jan,
    I love California poppies. I have to plant them every year, they don't just pop up like they do in the Southwest.

    Orange is beautiful!

  2. Those are beautiful..Gee..most of what I post isn't changed except for cropping...

  3. Poppies are hard to grow here. I've only ever seen them in a handful of yards.

    Lovely, Jan.

  4. Lovely poppy! This is my first time playing (I think)

    Mine is here

  5. Hi Jan,
    Beautiful Orange Poppy!! I have some poppies growing here. They are the hardest things to get going. It took me 3 years to get them started here. I'll have to take a picture if I can catch them before the wind or rain gets to them. Mine is posted, I have flowers too!! Have a great day!!

  9. Beautiful poppies. We have so many here along the freeways; only it's impossible to stop and photograph them! Interesting idea for a photo meme - "straight out of the camera..." I'll check back!
