Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday

These are shots of the "Cypress" geranium in my yard. I named it "Cypress", because I took a cutting of a geranium growing out to the asphalt, next to a storm drain in Cypress, CA. It's a very hardy plant and I've given away tons of cuttings. I really like the last two shots of the dying blossom.

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.

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.
Also, please link back to Murrieta365. Thanks, Jan.

This is not a rule, but could you consider disabling the captcha (word verification), in your comments, if you still use it? Very irritating.


  1. Love your geraniums Jan. One of my summer favorite flowers. Mine's up bright and early hehe.

  3. Nice shots of the passing blossoms. ;-)

  4. Love geraniums and am very fond of the scented ones such as the rose, lime, lemon, etc.

  5. Geraniums have been one of the easiest flowers for me to grow.
    These are lovely!
    The dying blossoms remind me of hair scrunches. :)

    I played.
    Mine’s here: Round The Bend.
