On this past weekend I went to Heerengracht Fountain to test some devices that have cameras and to conduct some augmented reality testing, all for upcoming articles for brainwavez.org and COSMO.
It had been just under a month since I had last been there (also to test some gadgets) so I was surprised to see that flowerbeds filled with lots of rows of little flowers had magically manifested all around the fountain and in sections along the outer ring of grass that runs around the fountain.
Setting aside the bad planning of the beds, whose placement don't take into account human movements around the fountain area and which, in time, is going to see either trampled flowers or pathway grooves forming in the grass, it looks pretty.
I guess that was the point, and the fountain, though it is beautiful enough as it is, got some extra TLC in anticipation of a specific big sporting event that's kicking off next week.

In case you're wondering, the two photos and the panorama were taken with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W370 compact digital camera and the augmented reality shots were taken with the Motorola Milestone, an Android-based cellular phone.
