Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story

On the 22nd of February 2011 Christchurch, New Zealand suffered an earthquake that measured 6.3 on the richter scale.  One hundred and eighty-five people lost their lives in the earthquake.

Over the last three and a half years there has been a lot of change in Christchurch and there have been lots of powerful images of the earthquake and its after effects. On a recent return to my home town I took a number of photos on my iPhone.  The photo below is of a site that used to be the location of the PriceWaterhouseCoopers building one of the highest buildings in the city.
