most cities see their skylines go up through time.
In Christchurch, NZ, the skyline has gradually been disappearing since the devastating quake in February 2011 that killed 185 people.
here it is in January 2011, after the 7.1 quake on 4/9/2010, so already there are a couple of small buildings missing.

here it is a couple of weeks ago just after one of the buildings had been demolished in a controlled demolition.

there are still buildings to come down, so there will be even less of a skyline at the end of this year. the two biggest buildings that haven't started demolition yet are the big concrete and glass building on the far right and the white building with a sloped grey roof.

That photo is cool to me because my great uncle worked for Standard Oil (Esso) in Rio in the 40's and 50's as an engineer.
