Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday

We haven't been blessed with any rain lately, are you kidding Southern California, in August! I pulled these shots of my garden from the files. I love my little garden.

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 that droplet! Mine's up and ready. Have a great weekend Jan.

  2. Both are delightful photos! Love the fresh sense of colour in the first one and the droplet almost looks like a glittering gem!

  3. I know what you mean about loving our garden. I love mine too.

    I wish the West Coast of the US and Canada would get some rain soon!

  4. Wonderful shots. Hope you get some rain; I know the feeling. We got a 1/2 inch Tuesday. We were thrilled.

  5. I love pictures of rain drops. We've been getting a bit of rain here in Washington, but that's to be expected here. I'm just a little disappointed after getting used to the upper 80s that we've been having for most of the summer.

  6. Nicely done, Jan. I always love water drops on flowers, leaves, etc.

  7. P.S. I agree re: the word just isn't needed if you "approve" can always delete what you don't like or is vulgar, etc.

  8. Hi Jan,
    Very pretty flowers! I love the water drops. I haven't gotten any of those on my camera yet. I'll have to give it try if we ever get any rain! Have a great day!


  9. Beautiful. The textures on the purple one are wonderful.
