1968 Thailand

229. SE Asia 1968 – Thailand Bangkok – Chiang Mai Dancers

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.

You know what I said about the sequence of shots in the last post – forget it.

This post completes the Royal Barge visit and is a sequence of shots of Chaing Mai dancers and performers.

When viewing the next lot, you’ll have to provide your own music. I had some Schubert violin pieces playing and then Mariko Smith’s London Bridge, but your choice may differ.

I chose this one as Doris took the shot the exact moment the jewel sparked with the reflected sun. It reminded me of those ’70s fantasy shows where the jewel glowed before the wearer used his special power.

The camera I have now has a (battery draining) high speed multiple shot capacity which I used to great effect last night as daughter no 2 (23) had made a slide down the stairs with mattresses and grand daughter (8) was being a health and safety nightmare.

There is a companion shot to this in an Agfa odds post.

See the guy in the background? Before the days of photoshop (and computers for that matter – bar HAL 9000) the only way to ‘crop’ was to physically block that part of the slide. Doris had done this with a black length of film tucked into the side of the slide. I was in two minds as to crop him out again – but he seems so interested in the scene, he can stay.

I’m sure this is not a baguette.

Ah, his interest has wandered.

I love the way she studiously ignores the guy taking a shot of her armpit.
