Sorting the Gallery

Added some Kumbha Mela 2001 photographs.   Would like to know who is in them?

Cleaned up the display of images, hid the searchable  keywords and generally improved the user experience.

Still need a header image – something bright and flowery. Maybe I’ll chopshop the opium poppy image.

Images – New & Old Looks.

The new photo gallery uses a different application and we can compare how a single photo looks:



Use the full-size icon in the new gallery (above & below) to supasize the image. The original image can also be downloaded.


Installing & configuring a photo gallery.

Installed Menalto Gallery & tested with two images. Now it’ll be config time wrestling with .php, .css and their friends .htaccess etc.

Take a look at In Memoriam – a basic album with 2 sub-albums. Do you like the theme? This will be the default theme with a few changes. Unless you know of a better one?

Please comment if you have any ideas; if you are expert and want to help – please contact us.

Menalto Gallery is free open-source software.


In Memoriam – In Development

While learning Drupal I’m building a temporary site home page.

As you will see I want to remember those who have gone before & I am in need of good personal photos and reminiscences  of Bhaskar & Lupo especially.

I’d also like to mention Brian Beresford who was an early traveller, a lovely man & an excellent photographer, see his archive at Nomad Picture Library

They will all have their own single simple memorial page leading off from these  small home page photos IN MEMORIAM.
