August 27, 2013 – 22:31

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Some cities have become known through the life and work of one of their beloved sons. Such is the case of Mejorada del Campo, situated a few kilometers from Madrid. The person to whom I refer is called Justo Gallego Martínez. Now 81 years old, continues his relentless daily labor, started more than 50 years.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA To understand the nature of what place it is necessary to know some facts about his life and, therefore, the Fair itself provides us with some information.

As we saw above, Justo Gallego began his life's work after being expelled from the monastery of Santa Maria de Huerta (Soria Province) due to tuberculosis. Cured, he said, the Virgin of Pilar, began to build, like a cathedral cristiana, a monumental work in thanks to God and the patron saint of Spain.

It's amazing how, without any academic training related to construction and architecture, Justo lifted his majestic "cathedral". All knowledge must be learned reading that undertook throughout his life, about the construction of castles and cathedrals.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA His apprenticeship was interrupted after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War.

The "Cathedral of Justo Gallego", although so called by the inhabitants of the city, and all those in the know, is not actually officially a temple consecrated to not be, or be recognized by the Diocese of Alcalá de Henares, which belongs the municipality.

Moreover, the construction was done, and continues to be, without any architectural plan, because your project is in the imagination of this remarkable man who, nevertheless, now acknowledges the need for someone to follow.

In 2005, an advertising campaign for a drink called "Aquarius" Fair provided the cathedral and its international fame, and the Museum of Art in New York (MAM) a photographic exhibition dedicated to him and his unique and amazing creation.

The building occupies an area of ​​nearly 5000 meters square, owned by Fair and his family. Today, the cathedral measures 35m high, 60m long and 25m wide, and consists of all the constituent elements of a classic cathedral as crypt, cloister, columns, archways, porch, etc.. Below, we see the exceptional summit.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Like a "Gaudi anonymous" Fair use, for the edification of the building, recycled materials varied, mostly donated by companies and individuals. Predominate defective bricks, assigned by a local factory of ceramics.

Mac OSX & Olympus Digital Camera Compatibility?

At the risk of sounding stupid, I'm wondering if there's any way that I can use the new Olympus FE-280 digital camera that I received as a Christmas present with my Macintosh OSX 10.1.5 computer. The camera says it's not supported unless there's an OS of 10.3 or higher. Is there a way to upgrade from the 10.1.5 to the 10.3? And, if so, how do I do it? And, how much does it cost? Is there any way to get it free? Should I just return the camera? Are most cameras nowadays not going to be compatible with my older operating system? (I bought this computer in '02.) Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not very versed in these areas to know what to do
