Photo Gallery software that can *sync* with Amazon S3?

Is there software that I can run on a LAMP server that will periodically poll an Amazon S3 Bucket and build a photo gallery based on the "folders" it finds within that bucket? Even better if it's something that generates a static HTML site and a RSS feed. Help me out AskMefites!

I have been a Flickr Pro for several years now, but the recent changes have left me a little wary of having it be the primary place for publishing my photos online. Instead I'd like to host the photos on my own site and then use something like IFTTT to publish to Flickr.
However, the server I use for most of my other sites has fairly limited disk space and I'd prefer not to host the photos on it directly and instead use Amazon S3 as the backend. Now I have been able to find photoblog software that can use Amazon S3 but it seems to be a one-way sync, i.e., I upload via the Photoblog UI and the files are shunted over Amazon S3. This unfortunately means I don't have a way of sending photos from my phone to the photoblog site, even though apps exist that would upload photos from my phone to a Amazon S3 Bucket.
There is an existing AskMe
from 2 years ago, but there isn't a very conclusive answer in that thread.
