Straight Out of the Camera Sunday



How do you like the telephoto lens framing which highlights the green zebra tomatoes? I've never tasted one but understand the zebras are exceptional. If I had not just purchased two pounds of fresh tomatoes, these would have made it into my shopping bag. This vendor will be at our next farmer's market day, two weeks hence, and I will to go to his booth first.

Check out the other straight out of the camera shots at Murrieta 365. The two requirements to participate in SOOC Sunday are 1) no tweaking is done, and 2) you took the photo. :D

Until next time, God bless.

Very artistic, Lynn! I have tried the telephoto thingy with limited success, but this works quite well. Also very well arranged with the colors on the white tablecloth. Again, I love the look of your blog.

Lynn, I really love your photo. I've never heard of Zebra Tomatoes, Zebras and Tomatoes I've heard of, but not together. I'll keep my eyes open for them.

Looks good. Turned out nice.

Lynn said...

Thanks...both of you...and I wish the framing was intentional, but alas, it was an accident. I haven't gotten the telephoto lens program down very well. lol It is still hit and miss.

Oooohh those look delicious. I've never had them either and would love to know what you think when you do. Isn't this time of year great with all the fresh produce. Got some corn and beets at the farmstand today.

I've never had Zebra Tomatoes, but my mouth is watering looking at them! I might have to get some seeds and try some next year in the greenhouse.

Zebra tomatoes? I cannot see you striped tomatoes in there. Oh you got nice finds. . .I google that!

I only heard about zebra tomatoes about a month ago; this is the first I've seen. The vendor told me that restaurants are requesting them more since the zebra is very tasty as well as makes for an attractive food presentation.

I saw some zebra tomatoes last week but didn;t need any at the time. Maybe next trip I will give them a try.

Beautiful photos, the telephoto is looking good. If you have a farmers' market in two weeks don't forget to take some photos for the next challenge on the 25th.
