468. An aside

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.

Bored, I thought ‘What have been my least successful posts?’ Here that is, not in my working life where the winner would be the firm that I take the petrol can off the owner as he sprinkled fuel around after a late evening tantrum. But then again that’s where I met my wife 34 years ago. She was holding the matches [1].

These are links to posts with no visitors – ahh, poor lonely things. Please feel free to visit them by clicking the link to bump up my stats (and see some worthwhile pictures of course, especially the low numbered ones).

8. Hertfordshire – St Albans – 1964

11. India 1978 (Agfa odd)

32. Austria 1959 – Under the Eagle’s Nest, St Anton and Österreichische Bundesbahn 999 104 (Schafbergspitze)

36. London 1970s

38. Thailand 1973

45. Kent 1957-1961 – Tunbridge Wells, Chiddingstone and Eynsford

52. Ah. My numbering went wrong. I’ve got two posts with ½ added (320½ and 337½) where I duplicated the number now I’ve found one that has disappeared. I remember it well, it was brilliant, one picture was of Lord Lucan riding Shergar when Doris visited Atlantis.

[1] The first bit is true, the second not so, she uses a lighter.

As this post has no pictures I’ve picked one from Doris’ 2003 tour of New England where they were playing around with reflections. In 2003 she would have been 85 and still travelling.
