Christchurch Earthquake Photos 2015

After four and a half years, there is some progress in Christchurch with rebuilding the city. Here are a few photos. You will notice a lot of flat ground – this is where buildings have been demolished and are yet to be rebuilt. A lot of street art on the sides of buildings (photos to come), a lot of green flat spaces made into temporary parks until the fate of the land is determined.

As you can see we are still living in a mess, road cones and security fences. But things are starting to take shape. I’ll add more when I get a chance.
