United Buddy Bears, Plaza San Martín, Buenos Aires

DSC00327.jpgDSC00330.jpgIMG_0050.jpgA rather novel idea: bear statues, each decorated independently by an artist on the theme of a country. Called the United Buddy Bears, they are touring the world and spending a few weeks in Plaza San Martín in Buenos Aires.

Floralís Genérica, Buenos Aires

This is simply a gigantic metal flower which opens and closes in response to the sunshine.Floralis_Generica_02.jpgFloralis_Generica_07.jpgFloralis_Generica_10.jpg

Designed by Eduardo Catalano, and built with the help of Daimler, it was gifted to the city in 2002.

Tigre Delta

Armed with her new camera, we decided to take a trip to El Tigre Delta, a little upriver from Buenos Aires yesterday.  It’s a beautiful place, a long way from our daily lifestyles.  Hope was expressed that we could spend our summer holidays there this year.

Coppermine vs Gallery

The time came (yesterday) for me to update my Coppermine photo gallery install.  It’s probably been 2 years since I installed it, and no doubt there are many impressive upgrade options that I’m missing.  Well, look I did, and none could I find.  I updated to the latest stable, and essentially everything looks exactly the same to me.

So I had a look around for other similar software.  And thanks to an ILUG post from the few months ago, I found Gallery.  This is a considerable step up from Coppermine, and it’s a lot easier to install/set-up.

Until I can find a nice way of redirecting from Coppermine to Gallery, I’m going to keep both sites running.
