Colombia Stencil Archive Updated

We rarely do archive overhauls these days. Since this is a volunteer-run site, there appears to never be enough time to tackle incorrect spellings, generic filenames, and other photo data changes. Over on the s/stencils subreddit, user stopme45 posted and located a protest stencils from Bogota, Colombia. While checking it out, we reviewed the Stencil Archive for Colombia and saw that the city's name had been misspelled. There were only 20 images in this archive, so it was easy to make corrections and changes and reupload all the images from backup files.

We doubt major overhauls will happen any time soon for other archives, especially large ones like Hamburg or Australia. Who knows?! Never say never....

Meanwhile, check out the photos from Colombia dating back to 2005. This post's featured photo is by San Francisco artist Mona Caron. She spreads her weeds seeds all across the globe.
