Straight Out Of the Camera ~ window

I was hoping for a better picture, but I couldn't go and make the mothers of the bride/groom move... so I still took the photo and think it's kinda neat even with the extra bodies... I'm inside the chapel looking out at the happy newlyweds in the garden starting their wedding photos ~ For more Straight Out Of the Camera photos, visit Jan at:


EDIT: Julie left me a comment and suggested I use this for the meme "window views". Well, I found it on her blog and linked this post up this week! Thanks for letting me know about this meme!

Brenda's Photo Challenge


The challenge is to get up close and personal, to get a macro shot... here is my African Violet that is in bloom right now! I can't get good in-focus shots really really up close, need to practice more on that or get more zoom capabilities! ;)
