Red Zone (2xPiP)

The devastating Febr. 2011 quake and various aftershocks had flattened vast parts of Christchurch's City Centre. In late 2012 much of it was still in the Red Zone and fenced off. The collapsed spire of the Cathedral had been demolished and a debate about what to do with the church had started. Only in late 2017 a decision was reached to rebuild the Cathedral, with a narrow majority of 55%.





HFF, folks!

HFF, Gudrun. Nice selective colour

What's the thing that looks like a heart-shaped pincushion on the left of the image?

Gudrun replied to Judith Jannetta:

Thanks a lot, Judith! It 's a heart for the damaged cathedral, I have just added a second note with the campaign poster which also has the heart.

Great use of selective colour. Weren't you a bit worried about going to a geologically sensitive area? But no - you have visited Iceland as well. The citizens of Christchurch seem to be very stoic in the face of adversary.
HFF and a good weekend, Gudrun.
