Alice’s Choppers

I drafted this post yesterday in preparation for a tutorial session with a WordPress Happiness Engineer.

This involves more scans of prints from the Isle of Wight holiday photographed on film in August 1980.

I have not noted the exact location of any of these images. Here is a cormorant on a wreck, seemingly claiming to be cock of walk in the second photograph.

Here Alice proudly displays her nice new choppers.

Oliver and Jessica joined others in a horse and cart ride.

This was the first Meadow Brown (I think) butterfly that I photographed.

I didn’t receive a phone call from Mr Happy. I got an invitation by e-mail to a chat session on Zoom. I couldn’t make it work. I spent 15 minutes looking at my own image on screen. I do hope no-one heard my ejaculations.

I am an octogenarian enjoying rambling physically and photographing what I see, and rambling in my head as memories are triggered. I also ramble through a lifetime's photographs. In these later years much rambling is done in a car.

  1. I wondered what your title would refer to. I thought some sort of helicopter activity, but the photo of Alice is much nicer. 🙂
    Happiness Engineer is such a ridiculous title, and I’m sorry you had such a frustrating time.

  2. Great pics Derrick, appears there are quite a few wrecks around the Isle of Wight, probably from the war years I surmise, love the smile on little Alice’s face, adorable.

      1. I think a call makes more much sense for us as WordPress users. I also think they should issue picture instructions because seeing the screen and the path you need to take makes things clearer for us.

      2. My brain just does not absorb things as quick as it used to, and even though my background is computing, I struggle with some new ideas.

  3. I’ve never heard of a Happiness Engineer. Sounds positive. Hope it is at some point. 🙂
    Alice’s choppers are lovely and her smile beautiful! 🙂
    Love the cart and horse and riders! The water shots! And the gentle beautiful butterfly! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂
