Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday

Last Wednesday, Southern California was rainy and drizzlely, when I went to the Orange Count/Long Beach area, to take Oden to his soccer practice, I went to the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSULB. I hadn't been for a long time, and thought it would be the perfect place to visit on such a dreary day. This is one of the many images I took and I think it's beautiful, just SOOC.

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.

I really enjoy hosting this, and appreciated those who join in, you're such wonderful blog friends.


  1. Love the amazing colour tone of this enhanced by the droplets of water! I don't know what flower it is, but it looks magical!

  2. Beautiful Jan! Love the color and those drops.

  3. I truly is lovely, Jan. Is it a flower or a seed pod? I'm not familiar with it.

  4. I just love close up shots, and the water makes it perfect Jan.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week-end.

  5. Beautiful. Love seeing rain drops on such a delicate flower.

    I've posted mine.

  6. Photography after the rain can be quite rewarding, as you have shown us in this photo. Beautiful colors and the raindrops add to the mystique and the glory of this wonderful flower.

  7. Great idea for a challenge--and lovely, lovely photos! I'm glad I came across your blog today!

  8. Very nice. It looks like a flower from a Bougainvillea bush. I tried taking a picture of raindrops on leaves the other day, but it didn't come out as nice as this. I'm too paranoid to take pictures in the rain. I don't have a spare camera to fall back on. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  9. I really like this picture. Thesre is somethig special about water drops close up. I
    think I have a few pictures that I like SOOC. I'll try to find them for next week.

  10. A lovely macro. I wonder what it is, exactly. Very tropical looking. Is anything nicer than the sweet looking drops of water on it?
    I've posted a rose, SOOC of course. The only way to go, in my opinion.
