Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!
Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.
The Cathedral is one to visit. The guides were really friendly and informative and the place beautiful. When we were there, a large art installation was across the Nave which was basically a huge musical instrument. Hope it is still there as it was great fun to play and to watch other people either tentatively strumming it or, as with some kids, sticking themselves through the strings and running from end to end.
In 1970 Doris must have visited the City again.
I need to rescan the slides but for now I’ll just add one that I like.
When we went there in May 2017 we tried to recreate the shot
Unfortunately they had removed the seat so my youngests tried their best
At that point my camera battery dies and I went back to the car to get replacements. As I got to the spot, this couple, him sporting a big beard, unfortunately she without a hat were passing and I persuaded them to pose.
This is a booklet that was in among Doris’ stuff. It is dated 1948, but to be honest I have no idea when she acquired it.
