My name is Chris and I took hardly any of the photographs you will see in this site.
The purpose of WDEOD is to share photographs taken by a friend of my wife.
Doris Shipway (1918 – 2014) enjoyed travelling and photographing her trips. She used good quality slide film and equipment and in my opinion had a good eye for a shot.
When she died, she left about 50 year’s worth of slides and various related documents. These all were destined for a skip, so we agreed to find a home for them.
Our idea was to give them immediately to a society or museum, but initial inquiries did not find anyone willing to have them.
I therefore decided to organise, scan and publish them myself.
A couple of years, and scanners, later, I have ~30,000 photo files, little yellow Kodak and green Fujifilm boxes everywhere and a wardrobe full of slides that my wife would much rather house her winter wear.
