Really Awful Oopsies.


The Weekly Photo Challenge is to produce something reflecting Oops!

That should be easy for me – it is a word I use rather often at such times as when I offer a dramatic gesture at a formal dinner which increases the drama by knocking a full glass of red wine all over the table cloth, into the hostess’s food, and thence splashing generously onto her white dress.

I added a picture at the end which isn’t an ‘oops’ by me, but was suggested by my editing alter ego.

A thunderstorm; what have we got Apart from a suspicious spot?? A werewolf with his shiny eyes And blurred-dy dog turned in surprise!

A thunderstorm; what have we got
Apart from a suspicious spot??
A werewolf with his shiny eyes
And blurred-dy dog turned in surprise!

The setting for the kids won't do - And shouldn't that there crane be blue? It's big enough to hoist some bricks ... Oh, backdrop's fake . op-tickle tricks!

Expressions for the kids won’t do –
And shouldn’t that there crane be blue?
It’s big enough to hoist some bricks …
(Oh, backdrop’s fake . op-tickle tricks!)

Oh, super! There she's In the lead. I'd better take this one at speed; Wait for it ... Now! The perfect shot! (But look at what instead I got!)

In S.A. a familiar sight - But did they really get it right? A meaning that they somehow lost Is how much little style can cost!

S. Africa’s familiar sight –
But did they really get it right?

Is how much little style can cost!

  1. Great job! Yeah, I’m thinking I probably shouldn’t be a red wine drinker…it doesn’t mix well with “klutz!”

    Little style is priceless, Col. I have it in abundance!
    I actually thought the backdrop was real, until I spotted the pins down the side there. Very clever, that!
