Beautiful light this morning so took a quick shot of the city.

Then decided this is a good day to post a record shot of how we look now so I can compare our view in years to come.

The top image is today, and the lower image was taken on 22 Feb 2011 – the day of our devastating earthquake.

The cranes are deconstructing buildings – not constructing which is the usual reason for cranes on a city skyline. As well as the 5 or 6 tall buildings being worked on at the moment, at least another 3 or 4 of the tallest buildings are unsafe and will disappear from our view over the next few months.

Best view for comparing the changes.

Not good photos I’m afraid, but with the large amount of dust in the air this is the best I can do 🙂
