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.
How to use this site.
If you see ≡ that is the Menu and opens these options:-
PLACES MENU – Wander around continents then countries. All from there should be displayed as you scroll down.
YEAR MENU – Or do it by the year the shot was taken.
SEARCH – Or even type in the place you are looking for.
CATEGORIES and TAGS – Categories are mostly the same as Places. Tags may prove helpful, but only if I put them in right.
Feel free to comment, especially to provide labels.
If you are going to link me on Facebook or another Social Media website, please mention that the photographer was Doris Shipway.
