Streets of Christchurch.

When I visited Christchurch on the weekend initially I was bewildered by the destruction, dust and lack of apparent eagerness to get the city beautified again (kind of reminded me of Newcastle NSW so there must be a fair bit of politics happening behind the scenes). But then I started wandering about and realised there was so much to this crumbled city and it’s probably a  wee (a term used liberally in NZ)  bit interesting. So I’ve taken a few photos of the art and the havoc wreaked by the earthquake of 2011. It’s a gentle reminder of our vulnerability I guess. Though we all love to have a go at taming nature.
