Photo tribute to Christchurch New Zealand

Six hours ago Christchurch was devastated by a 6.3 level earthquake. So far, 65 people are confirmed dead, lots more injured and many buildings have collapsed, including the spire of the 147 year old cathedral. The cathedral is shown intact, below.

Our hearts go out to the people there. I thought it might be appropriate to mark this by a photo gallery of pictures I took there last year. Sadly, many of these buildings have been badly damaged as the epicentre of the quake was near the centre of town.
