Dajavous is really a team - DA "the man who can" who takes photos, processes them, keeps the PC running etc under the direction of "she who must be obeyed", JA who writes, researches and cribs the descriptions, adds comments and creates galleries.
Last birthday JA received a new camera of her own - to reduce the wear & tear on DA's ears. (She is learning to frame shots, strictly point & shoot, doesn't mess with the controls but is having lots of fun.)
We met at university and have been together for more than 30 years.
JA likes to make virtual scrapbooks of the places we visit, so you will find many of our sets loaded with comments, text and links to other websites. This can take a great deal of time and I have many projects and galleries 'in progress'.
My galleries fall into two groups:
information galleries (generally about stained glass, art, architecture, places ...)
concepts (often colour-themed).
This is my most visited gallery:
I belong to the Flickr galleries group where the admins work really hard to create manual lists of people's galleries.
JA is currently undergoing 'a bit of a jigsaw phase'. She favours wooden puzzles and has just started a new flickr group called 'Traditional Wooden Jigsaws' - please drop in for a look. She is also a proud admin of the Edward Burne Jones group (and loves to combine her obsessions). She is also helping to build a new group, 'Nottinghamshire Parish Churches'.
I use comments to include photos I've found from other flickr members to illustrate points or cover aspects we overlooked - I am extremely grateful to them all for sharing their photos on flickr and with me. The ability to paste large images in comments is a fantastic tool for comparative research on art and architecture. I hate twinkling award gifs, whose unpopularity threatens this.
It would be impossible to ask permission to feature each individual photo. If you don't like the way I have featured your photo please contact me and I will remove it.
The map is a bit of a cheat - it includes both our travels, some business and stopovers on route!
