CHCH is like a smaller version of Oxford or Cambridge in England. It is very quaint.

The CBD is still closed to people - it is mainly construction workers in the area who are demolishing buildings and/or strengthening others. Christchurch won't be the same again and it is going to take many years before it gets back to being normal again

I know exactly how you feel, it is very, very sad Just watched a local tv show where they presented the viewers with some proposals for the rebuild of the city and it looks very promising - let's hope that they don't lose vision along the way

While this is now quite a tough thread to look through I really thank you for capturing what was a truly beautiful city. I dont want this thread to die.

I know we will get back on our feet and rebuild. I know one day Christchurch will be a beautiful city again, for now though it's still incredibly sad to see these gorgeous shots knowing what we've lost.

I dont think I ever took Christchurch for granted, we all thought it was a magical city unlike anywhere else- but oh how I miss it.

Looking forward to seeing you guys in the next few weeks.

I am also confident that CHCH will rise to be the envy of NZ .... from the plans that I have seen it is going to be stunning and it is also great to read so much positive news coming from CHCH

We are also looking forward to your visit mate - stay strong and see ya soon

Looking through this thread has made me incredibly sad. I was down in Christchurch in mid-February (about a week before the earthquake) and I thought it was beautiful.

(Hello from a long-time lurker! I'm a big fan of your photography, Sydney; you make me proud to live in Auckland!)
